American basketball player Zach LaVine, shooting guard at Chicago Bulls, was placed in isolation in the United States on Monday as a precaution and was therefore unable to travel to the Japanese capital Tokyo, where the Olympic Games start on Friday, the American basketball federation announced on Monday. .
It is currently unclear whether it concerns a positive corona test or a high-risk contact. The American federation hopes that LaVine can travel to Japan this week. On Sunday, the United States will open their tournament there with a game against France.
Bradley Beal had to cancel earlier due to a corona infection. Kevin Love has not recovered sufficiently from a right calf injury.
