It was announced early Monday morning that LaVine was entering health and safety protocols, and would not be joining Team USA in Tokyo to begin the tournament.
Team USA's Zach LaVine has been placed under health and safety protocols and will not travel with the team to Tokyo today. USAB hopes LaVine will be able to join the team in Tokyo later this week.
