Per Joe Vardon of The Athletic, Damian Lillard and Kevin Love may also skip the 2019 Basketball World Cup.

The two NBA stars are expected to announce their decision soon, however it is doubtful if they will eventually compete in the tournament.

Six players of Team USA have already withdrawn their participation from the World Cup (Anthony Davis, James Harden, Tobias Harris, C.J McCollum, Bradley Beal, Eric Gordon).

For their part, Kemba Walker and Khris Middleton will remain with the team and play in the World Cup.
