Folks on Twitter saying he rolled his ankle pretty bad. Any truth to this?

Mustapha Heron is out for Team USA tonight due to his ankle sprain suffered in last night's game.

It's just been categorized as a bad sprain. Wouldn't expect anything to be that worried about.

Let's get those ankle sprains out of the way now. We will not be able to afford them (for either Mustapha or LJ) once the season starts.

Actually Powell did play and fouled out with only 2 points.USA was up 10 most of game until 4th Q.Had trouble scoring in second half and Heron who had a dozen points remained on the bench for the last 8 1/2 minutes. Looked like a typical Ed Cooley coached Providence team where they blow a late lead. If they won would have matched up with Figgy's Dominican team.

Like i said, this Diallo is a chucker(6-15 fg’s) and Cooley played him almost all game while Heron played only 16 minutes yet had 12 points on 5-6 from the field. If he doesn’t sit the last 9 minutes USA wins the game. Once again, just hope he remembers this when we play them in conference. Because Cooley has this team looking SLOPPY and is favoring his guys to the detriment of the team. Always root for the USA but if Cooley doesn’t have his BEST players on the court(especially in crunch time) he is going to get himself and his guys embarrassed. Heron, Powell & that big dude NEED to be on the court as much as possible imo.


Maybe he sat the last nine minutes because he hurt his ankle

He didn't hurt his ankle until the next game. Try to keep up 85! ;) :)

Got back from vacation on Friday and still have another week off, so I am still on vacation mode and trying to keep up. Obviously it is not working.

When John Thompson coached the Olympics, pre-freshman Mourning was the very last cut, and he didn't deserve to be that far along in the process. Thompson kept him uaround to improve his own college team for the next season.

It’s not shocking. It’s just plain stupid.

In Andy Katz interview w/ Ed Cooley on PanAm games, Coach Cooley describes Mustapha Heron having a big personality, very high basketball IQ and potentially a 1st Team All-Conference selection
