Kawhi Leonard, Tyrese Haliburton and Joel Embiid will report to Olympic training and the United States team breathes a sigh of relief

Kawhi Leonard, Tyrese Haliburton and Joel Embiid are set to report to the national basketball team’s training camp in Las Vegas next week, the first step in what is expected to be the Americans’ fifth Olympic gold medal.

Leonard missed 12 of the team’s last 14 games. Los Angeles Clippers with inflammation in the right knee. Haliburton -for his part- was limited in the playoffs with the Indiana Pacers due to left hamstring problems. Meanwhile, Embiid has dealt with left knee issues all season with the Philadelphia 76ers.

“We hope everyone is ready,” coach Steve Kerr said Thursday. “We have been talking to everyone, not just the three of them. “We have been in constant communication and we hope that all 12 are ready.”

Leonard was the biggest unknown. Haliburton indicated at the end of Indiana’s campaign that he believed he would have enough to be ready for the Olympics. Embiid attended the NBA Finals two weeks ago and declared himself ready for his first Olympic experience.
