San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge won’t bid for a spot on the U.S. team’s roster for the Summer Olympics due to a lingering finger injury. Spurs general manager RC Buford said in a statement they “always support a player’s decision when it comes to participation with his national team.”

Aldridge joins Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who announced his removal from consideration Monday, and four other top players from USA Basketball’s original 31-man player pool to skip the Olympics due to health.
