Russell Westbrook won’t be participating in the 2016 Olympics, he announced on Friday.
“After speaking with my family, I have decided to not participate in this year’s Olympics,” Westbrook said in a statement. “This was not an easy decision, as representing my country at the World Championships in 2010 and the Olympics in 2012 were career highlights for me. I look forward to future opportunities as a member of USA Basketball.”
Westbrook didn’t play in the 2014 World Championships after recovering from a knee injury, but played in 2012 winning gold.
Kevin Durant still says he’s planning to play.
