The Ebola outbreak has changed USA Basketball’s travel plans.

The team scrapped an Aug. 27 trip to Senegal after health officials said it was too risky. More than 1,100 people have died in the Ebola outbreak sweeping West Africa, making it the largest and deadliest ever recorded.

“We really had an issue with canceling because we were so committed to the program down there and wanted to participate,” USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo said Friday. “(But) you can’t take any chances. We certainly didn’t want to put anyone at risk.”
