Team USA is working to replace Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal on the Olympics roster after he entered health and safety protocols, according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski. Beal will not return to the team, according to USA Basketball.

In the team’s only exhibition win against Argentina, Beal tied a team-high of 17 points. He also was a starter for all three exhibitions versus Nigeria, Australia and Argentina. This is a huge blow for the United States with the Tokyo Olympics right around the corner.

With the end goal still being to win gold, Beal’s replacement must be well thought out. It’s clear that he was going to have a big role for Team USA in Tokyo if this did not happen. Finding that replacement will be hard, but it’s not something that will hurt the team if done right. Some players that deserve a look are Russell Westbrook, Jimmy Butler and Zion Williamson.
