The USA Basketball’s roster for their men’s team has not been written in stone yet. Some feel that it has but after Players View spoke with Team USA’s media rep Craig Miller, we found out that indeed the roster spots are still very much up for grabs.

“Coach [Mike Krzyzewski] has always said that this roster is fluid. There are the 18 finalists and from that list a final team will be selected.  Injuries and things like that can come into play but there has not been any final determination of a complete roster at this time.”

On such injury that has come into play is that Miami Heat forward/center Chris Bosh will not make the games.

“I am extremely disappointed to say that due to injury, I cannot represent my country in the 2012 Olympics in London.  The abdominal injury that I suffered in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals is not fully healed.

After the Finals, I met with my doctors to determine the best course of action, with the full intent to play in the Olympics. From those meetings, I was advised that rest and additional rehab of my abdominal injury will be necessary in order to avoid the development of a chronic injury,” said Bosh in a statement.

So with Bosh and team mate Dwyane Wade out, it’s time to break-down who we think will make up the final roster of 12.  On July 7, we will find out how right or wrong we are.
