FIBA World Cup: Kyle Lowry withdraws from Team USA after not being cleared for ‘full basketball activities’

Kyle Lowry will not be competing in the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

The Raptors guard announced he was withdrawing from Team USA on Monday, citing health reasons.

Lowry had surgery on his right thumb in July. He made the trip to training camp despite having a fear the injury wouldn’t allow him to play, a report from ESPN noted.

He was a member of the 2016 gold-medal team and still hopes to represent the U.S. on the 2020 Olympic team, ESPN added.
