The two remaining spots will be filled by the second and third place teams from Group E of the AfroBasket Qualifiers.
Egypt has already qualified from the group, but Uganda still has to play three more games after they couldn’t play in the last qualifying window due to COVID-19 concerns.
Uganda, Morocco and Cape Verde will compete for the final two spots in this year’s AfroBasket.
The groups for the 2021 FIBA AfroBasket are as follows:
- Congo DR
- No. 3 team from Group E
- Central African Republic
- Cote d’Ivoire

- No. 2 team from Group E
The Group Phase will take place from Aug. 24-26 with the top two teams from each group then advancing to the Knock-Out Phase (Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Finals).
