Deron Williams was the only member of the Brooklyn Nets that was named to 2014-16 USA men’s basketball national team, but he is unlikely to play on the team due to chronic ankle injuries that he’s suffered over the past two seasons.

“I think it’d be tough given what’s going on the last two years for me to play this summer,” D-Will said. “I would love to, but you just got to see how it goes, you know?”

The team of 28 was selected to play in the 2015 FINA World Championships in Spain and the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. D-Will had played on the last two U.S. Olympic teams and won gold medals in both.
