Jayson Tatum Will Miss World Cup Games With Ankle Injury

Team USA is already having a rough time at the FIBA World Cup, and now they’ll have to get by without Jayson Tatum.

Tatum suffered a sprained left ankle at the end of the team’s narrow victory over Turkey on Tuesday. Doctors say he’ll miss at least the next two games and will be re-evaluated on Monday.

Tatum has averaged 10.5 points in the first two games. Team USA has already clinched a spot in the next round, which begins on Monday.
