Scottie Wilbekin has not fully recovered from his finger injury, yet he is expected to play against Team USA on Tuesday (03/09).

Here is what the guard of Turkey told reporters on Monday (02/09):

“I have a little pain, but I’m getting better every day. I trained with the team today. They played a very good first game. The USA is the best team in the tournament.

They have special abilities on the offensive end. They are doing great work on defense too. They do everything they want. We have to play a good game. It’s a little weird to play against the USA, but I’m a Turk now.”
