Headed to Tokyo Saturday
Holiday's status for Team USA's game on Sunday against France is uncertain. Team USA is down to only nine players without Holiday, Middleton and Booker so they're hopeful the trio is able to play Sunday. Team USA coach Gregg Popovich is unsure how much he'll use Booker, Middleton and Holiday in Sunday's game if they are available.

Headed to Tokyo
The hope for Team USA is that Devin Booker, Jrue Holiday and Middleton will all be available for Sunday's Olympic opener against France. However, it is still unclear how much they will actually be able to play given their recent usage throughout the NBA Finals. The American squad has struggled during the exhibition games in Tokyo and currently only have nine players until the trio arrives.

Off injury report for Game 6
Merrill was listed as out ahead of both of the previous two games of the series with a right ankle sprain, but he's apparently made a full recovery within the last week. Even before the injury surfaced, Merrill hasn't been featured in coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation. Don't expect him to see the floor Tuesday unless the game turns in a non-competitive direction.
