Zach LaVine has been placed under health and safety protocols and will not travel with Team USA to Tokyo today, USA Basketball announced.

The hope is that LaVine will be able to join the team in Tokyo later this week.

This news comes after Bradley Beal and Jerami Grant were placed into the protocols last week, forcing Beal to miss the Olympics.

Grant was ultimately cleared and re-joined the team.

Kevin Love also withdrew from the team as he returns to full strength from a right calf injury that kept him out a significant part of the NBA season.

Milwaukee Bucks’ Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday and Phoenix Suns’ Devin Booker will eventually join Team USA in Tokyo once the NBA Finals are complete.

Team USA begins their Olympic tournament on July 25 against France.
