It looks like yet another athlete will bow out of this summer's Olympic competition in Rio.

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins announced Friday that he has officially withdrawn his name from the Canadian National Team roster for the qualifying tournament that will determine the final few countries in the Olympics.

Among five other Canadians who also withdrew their names, Team USA isn’t the only squad that will be short of its best athletes when the opening round begins.

Most basketball rosters are not officially set on paper, so there is still time to add players to the national teams. Joel Anthony, Cory Joseph and Tyler Ennis have decided to remain on the roster for now, so Team Canada is not completely devoid of NBA players.

You can read Wiggins' official statement below:

After much though, consideration, and speaking with my family, I will not be participating in the Olympic Qualifying Tournament with the Canadian Men's National Team in July. As my third NBA season approaches, I understand my increased role with the Timberwolves and dedication to the upcoming season must have my total focus. We are building a championship-contending team, which has always been my goal. This was definitely not an easy decision and I fully support and wish Team Canada nothing but success this summer.
