Team USA’s Tatum game-time decision vs. France


DONGGUAN, China — Jayson Tatum took part in Team USA’s shootaround and has been upgraded to a game-time decision ahead of Wednesday’s World Cup quarterfinal against France (7 a.m. ET, ESPN2), coach Gregg Popovich said.

Tatum has missed the past three games after rolling an ankle against Turkey last week. He has been able to go through practice the past several days and has expressed an interest in getting back.

Marcus Smart, his Boston Celtics teammate, went through the shootaround and said he expects to play against France. Smart banged knees with another player in Monday’s win over Brazil and missed the fourth quarter.
