Coach Kestutis Kemzura made the last roster changes ahead of London Olympics. Two players who helped Lithuania qualify for the Olympics are set to miss the tournament.
Tomas Delininkaitis, who has been with the team for a number of tournaments, and Deividas Dulkys, who made his international debut in Caracas, were replaced by Renaldas Seibutis and Simas Jasaitis.
Both Dulkys and Delininkaitis spent most of the time on the bench during Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
Veteran forward Simas Jasaitis is national team regular. The 30-year-old missed OQT due to an injury. Since he managed to fully recover in time for the Olympics, Kemzura decide to bring him back.
Lietuvos Rytas guard Renaldas Seibutis will be making his second appearance for Lithuania. He last played in FIBA World Championship 2010. Seibutis was forced to leave the national early during the preparation process after an injury during the training session.
Lithuania will also miss starting center Robertas Javtokas who was replaced with Antanas Kavaliauskas. Kemzura explained his decision with a need to have taller guards in the team after the loss of Javtokas.
