Zach LaVine clears protocols, headed to TokyoJuly 21, 2021 | 07:42 AM
Bulls guard Zach LaVine has cleared health and safety protocols and will join Team USA in Japan on Thursday afternoon, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Analysis: LaVine was placed in the protocols on Monday, and reports said that it was likely he would still be able to join the team at some point. After already losing Bradley Beal, Team USA is fortunate to get LaVine back as quickly as they did, as they will open up Olympic play on July 25th against France. Team USA will also be getting Jrue Holiday, Khris Middleton, and Devin Booker, all of whom just finished up playing in the NBA Finals.
