LeBron James is expected to miss USA Basketball's minicamp to be held in Las Vegas next week, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.
James, who won two gold medals in 2008 and 2012 under head coach Mike Krzyzewski, will miss the first practices with new head coach Gregg Popovich. James did not play in the 2016 Games in Rio.
James, who was in Las Vegas on Sunday (Monday, PHL time) to watch the Los Angeles Lakers play a Summer League game, is expected to make his first comments about his move from Cleveland to Los Angeles on July 30 (July 31, PHL time) when he is hosting the grand opening of the I PROMISE School in Akron, Ohio, a public school created through his charity the LeBron James Family Foundation.
