Sacramento Kings guard De'Aaron Fox had been gaining a lot of traction as a potential star for the United States Men's National Team at the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

After impressing enough at training camp to receive the call-up from the Select Team to the National Team, Fox was outstanding in the team's Blue-White intrasquad scrimmage. In Team USA's first exhibition game, Fox only played six minutes against Spain.

Now, Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes has reported the rising star will withdraw from Team USA, becoming the latest player to focus on the upcoming NBA season.

Houston Rockets' forward PJ Tucker has also decided to withdraw from Team USA following the team's exhibition game with Spain due to an ankle injury, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported.

However, The New York Times' Marc Stein has reported that Marcus Smart - who had withdrawn from the World Cup during the team's training camp due to a calf injury - will travel with the team and "make a full return to the court" for the Red, White and Blue.

Team USA's roster is now at 13 players, only needing to make one cut for their final roster that will compete for the World Cup in China.

The remaining roster is as follows...

Joe Harris Forward
Kyle Kuzma Forward
Brook Lopez Centre
Khris Middleton Guard/Forward
Donovan Mitchell Guard
