    The Americans lost a player Thursday and put another in the health and safety protocol, and USA Basketball announced late Thursday night that the men's basketball game against Australia scheduled for Friday night in Las Vegas has been canceled "out of an abundance of caution."
    Bradley Beal, who was placed in the protocol Wednesday, was ruled out of the Olympics on Thursday. Jerami Grant was also placed into the protocol out of caution, though coach Gregg Popovich expressed optimism that the forward would be able to remain with the team.
    Beal said earlier this week that playing for the Olympic team had been a dream since he was a child. Teammate Bam Adebayo said Thursday that Beal was not experiencing any symptoms. Players are being tested daily.

    "I'm dying for [Beal]. We all are," Popovich said. "Since he was a little kid, this has been a dream of his, and he was playing great. ... For him and his immediate family, it's devastating. We just feel horrible about it."

    But on the bright side, he won't be on the list of the bozo's who took the Olympics off (but took part in) and were shocked they didn't win.
