Although Team USA was eliminated from medal contention following the loss to France on Wednesday, they still have a game on Thursday against Serbia. And it looks like they’ll have to play without Marcus Smart.

Listen to your team news NOW.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Smart wanted to play, but Team USA made the call to shut him down since the Celtics guard has dealt with calf tightness and a quad strain since joining the team.
