Victor Wembanyama has decided to sit out the FIBA World Cup this summer and instead focus on his rookie season with the Spurs. He said his health is the main focus as the volume of games he plans to play in between the upcoming NBA season and next year's Olympics was just too much to add in FIBA as well.
He has yet to play in any NBA action, but expectations are sky-high for the rookie. Taking his health seriously is a sign of maturity, something every team longs to see in their young players. That is especially true when they have potential stardom written all over them like Wemby.
