Washington Wizards point guard John Wall underwent procedures on both of his knees, the team announced Thursday, clouding his chance of making the U.S. Olympic team.
Wall is expected to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 NBA season in late October, but the team made no mention of if Wall could progress fast enough to be ready for a potential Olympic debut in Rio in early August.
The U.S. is already without its 2012 Olympic starting point guard, Chris Paul, who withdrew from team consideration in March.
The 12-man Olympic team is expected to be announced in late June.
If Wall is also out, that leaves USA Basketball to choose from this list of point guards among the roster pool finalists:
Russell Westbrook — 2012 Olympian
