Basketball exhibition game against Australia cancelled for safety concerns


(WWLP) – Health and safety concerns are already being expressed for the Olympic games.

The United States men’s basketball exhibition game against Australia was cancelled Thursday night because of health and safety protocols. This came hours after Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal was ruled out after being placed into health and safety protocols out of an abundance of caution.

The USA team is still scheduled to play Spain on Sunday.
