Anthony Davis and LeBron James had a tough season with the Los Angeles Lakers due to injuries that kept them out for a good amount of time.
As a result, they are not expected to be among the players to participate at the Tokyo Olympics, according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic.

“neither LeBron nor Davis is expected to play for Team USA due to their terrible seasons of injuries, according to a source close to both players.”
The Tokyo Olympics are scheduled to begin July 23. So, players who go deep into the postseason are less likely to play in the Olympics.
With the season schedule congestion having a huge impact on the players, it’s unlikely for several stars to join their national teams, especially those that are going deep in the postseason.
