After the two American players were immediately included in the Covid-19 agreement, Saturday’s baby boomers’ game against the US team was cancelled.
Due to Covid-19 concerns, the last Olympic exhibition match between the Baby Boomers and the US team has been cancelled.
The U.S. basketball team issued a statement on Friday saying that “out of caution”, due to health and safety regulations, the game against Australia has been cancelled.
On the eve of the Tokyo Olympics, Americans are facing a Covid crisis. Defender Bradley Beal (Bradley Beal) was excluded from the Olympics after being included in the Covid agreement on Thursday. Out of precautions, US forward Jeremy Grant was also included in the agreement.
At 4:30 on Saturday morning, the Opals game against the United States will proceed as scheduled.
It is believed that Bill did not test positive for the coronavirus, but due to possible exposure to the protocol.
After the baby boomers played against the US team in Las Vegas on Thursday, all Australian players and officials tested negative.
There is still a lingering question about whether additional isolation restrictions can be imposed on Baby Boomer teams when they are classified as potentially exposed Australian players when they arrive in Tokyo to participate in the Olympics.
It is understood that the US team players violated the agreement when they went out in Las Vegas.
Baby boomer legend Shane Hill said that given the current Covid-19 situation, it is common sense to cancel the warm-up match between Australia and the United States.
“The baby boomers are now in a very good position. I think they have completed these three (exhibition) games and gained everything from those three games,” Hill said.
“So, I don’t think you will take any risks. You can do some extra practice or internal melee because they have a large lineup and they can move on.”
Australia will play the American team at 8 AM (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on Saturday morning.
