Perhaps Tatum will return to the starting lineup of the U.S. team on Friday as they try to find the best combination of players who will eventually nod in the Olympics.
However, the U.S. team will disappear after Bradley Beal was recently included in the COVID-19 protocols. It is unknown whether his influence will cause him to miss the Tokyo Olympics altogether. Instead, Chicago Bulls goalkeeper Zach Lavin will most likely be promoted to the starting lineup.
