Tristan Thompson will try to lead the Canadian team to a win over J.J. Barea and Puerto Rico.

The second day of the FIBA Americas tournament gets underway on Saturday, as teams continue pool play and try to capture an automatic berth in the 2014 FIBA World Cup.

The highlight of Saturday's action comes in the second game, when a Canadian team stacked with NBA players takes the floor against Puerto Rico, which features Minnesota Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea.

Canada will feature Spurs guard Cory Joseph, Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson, Magic forward Andrew Nicholson, and Heat center Joel Anthony. Thompson, continuing a radical re-invention of his jump-shot over the off-season, will be playing his second game as a right-handed player.

Suns forward Luis Scola will be the only other NBA player in action on Saturday, playing for Argentina as they take on the Dominican Republic.
