A better rule is to count all players not born in the U.S. and who did not attend a U.S. high school. That puts Spain, with 220 WAR, at the top. And the Gasols make up nearly three-quarters of their home country’s NBA success. The other top players from Spain include Jose Calderon, Ricky Rubio and Rudy Fernandez, among others. Germany slides to fourth, behind the U.S. Virgin Islands and Nigeria, using this method. Why? Because Detlef Schrempf (and his 90 career WAR) is excluded from this analysis. Schrempf, German-born and raised, moved to the U.S. to finish high school. The Virgin Islands, being a territory, arguably doesn’t count as international, but it competes under its own flag so it’s broken out here. Tim Duncan is responsible for the bulk of the Virgin Islands’ WAR; Hakeem Olajuwon similarly for Nigeria. FiveThirtyEight

A full offseason to recover proved not enough for Lakers forward Xavier Henry to heal from a surgically repaired right knee. So Henry will travel to New York City and Germany for additional treatment, ensuring that will stay sidelined for the Lakers’ four remaining preseason games. The Lakers estimate Henry will return Oct. 24, four days before the Lakers’ season opener against the Houston Rockets at Staples Center. Henry will see Dr. Keith Pyne in New York City for a second opinion. Henry will then see Dr. Jens Hartmann in Dusseldorf, Germany sometime next week and undergo Regenokine treatment, a non-invasive procedure that Kobe Bryant has undergone numerous times in recent seasons. The treatment will entail blood being removed from Henry’s knee and spun in a centrifuge. Doctors will then create a serum and inject it back into his knee to fight off proteins and molecules that cause inflammation. Los Angeles Daily News
