USA men’s basketball team has lost one of its key players with Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal being ruled for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics slated later this month.

In a report by Adrian Wojnarowski, Beal could not join Team USA in Tokyo, Japan after entering the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) health and safety protocols.

USA Basketball is working to replace Beal on the team’s Olympic roster ahead of trip to Japan, the report added.

Meanwhile, Detroit Pistons forward Jerami Grant also entered the COVID-19 health and safety protocols but is yet to be ruled out for the Summer Games.

Team USA is looking to retain the Olympic gold medal in the men’s basketball, which they captured in the three previous Summer Games editions.
