R.J. Barrett will not suit up for Canada at the FIBA World Cup because of a mild calf strain he sustained at Summer League.
Barrett struggled with his efficiency in Las Vegas, and perhaps this explains why. Rookies rarely make national teams anyway, and this will also give Barrett the chance to focus on this upcoming season, where he'll be the main thing to give fans hope after the Knicks botched free agency. The stat set isn't where it needs to be to deliver first-year fantasy success, and despite a chance at big volume we'd tread carefully when it comes to selecting Barrett in re-draft formats.
