Igoudala makes final Olympic hoops roster
Blake Griffin, Andre Iguodala and James Harden were chosen to complete the roster for the U.S. Olympic basketball team.
They earned the final three spots that opened after a rash of injuries knocked out at least four players who would have been on the team.
They beat out Eric Gordon, Rudy Gay and No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis of New Orleans, who couldn't scrimmage this week because of a sprained ankle.
Also heading to London for the defending gold medalists are: LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Deron (DEHR'-ihn) Williams, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Tyson Chandler and Kevin Love.
The U.S. Olympic basketball team says Paul's injury suffered Friday night is a sprained right thumb, but it's not serious.
Paul was hurt during the first day of training camp and had an X-ray that revealed the injury.
He took part in some non-contact portions of practice Saturday, but did not scrimmage with the Americans.
The Los Angeles Clippers All-Star had a protective splint over the thumb and likely will sit out scrimmages for a few days.
