Anthony Davis was selected by the New Orleans Hornets with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft and was also a finalist on the 2012 U.S. Men's Olympic roster. Davis, however, looks like he will miss the Olympics and maybe some more time after suffering what's being called a "severely sprained ankle" during some workouts with his new NBA team.

Losing the option of Davis on Team USA could mean the loss of another option at center, as the team will not be able to have the option of Chris Bosh or Dwight Howard on their roster. Bosh will miss the Olympics dealing with an abdominal injury that forced him to sit out some of the NBA Playoffs, and Howard is still recovering from back surgery that forced him to miss the final part of the regular season and the playoffs.
The options at center for the U.S. are getting severely limited.
