Russia lost the game to the Swiss 79-77, an upset by all accounts. There was no indication after that game that the 6'7" shooting guard was hurt.

Staying in the frontcourt, what's the latest with Kevin Garnett? Has he talked to you yet about returning? Lionel Hollins: No, I haven't talked about that with him, but all reports that I have [from team management] is that he's coming back. It's his right to make that decision or change his mind if he has decided to come back or not come back. I'm not worried about that. That's out of my control. That's a decision that KG and his family have to make, and I'll leave it with him. Bleacher Report

Hollins said he has reached out to all 15 players on the roster, and heard back from all but two: Kevin Garnett and Joe Johnson. But Hollins said he wasn’t worried about that, and by the time the players return to the area in September, he’ll have spoken to everyone. “The important ones are the young guys and the new guys that are coming to the team,” he said. “I’ve had chances to talk to Brook [Lopez] on multiple occasions and Deron Williams, and so it’s been good. When we get to September, when everybody comes in I will have talked to everybody on the team and we’ll go forward.” New York Post

"Well, that's what the whole goal is," Hollins told Newsday in a phone interview Wednesday from Africa, where he's spending the week participating in the NBA's Basketball Without Borders program. "You can't be where you want to be unless you're healthy, and you can't get in shape unless you're healthy. If you are injured all summer, there's no way you can work out. "Deron is healthy, Brook is healthy and they are both able to work out." Newsday
