According to Ninja Adrian Wojnarowski, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook has withdrawn his name from consideration for Team USA’s World Cup roster.

Westbrook was a part of the gold-winning 2010 and 2012 rosters.

This decision, the birds tell me, is purely about rest. Westbrook had a third surgery on his right knee last season. The dynamic Thunder guard hopes to play in the 2016 Olympics.
