Jayson Tatum has been upgraded to a game-time decision ahead of Team USA's quarterfinals matchup versus France on Wednesday.
According to ESPN's Brain Windhorst, Tatum participated in Team USA's shootaround and practice the last few days without any setbacks. The Celtics forward rolled his ankle against Turkey last week and has missed the last three games for the U.S.
