Tyson Chandler Injuries have taken their toll on Team USA. While the ailments might hurt the U.S.' quest for a second straight Olympic gold, they've given several first-time Olympians an opportunity to shine on the world's largest stage. Here are four that SI.com believes are destined for Olympic stardom.
At 7-foot-1, Chandler will bring much-needed size to Team USA's frontcourt. With players such as Dwight Howard, Chris Bosh and Andrew Bynum sidelined, the U.S. will need every inch they can get to battle the likes of Spain, Brazil and Argentina down low. Chandler played for Team USA during the 2007 FIBA Americas championship and the 2010 FIBA world championships, averaging 2.6 points and 2.7 rebounds in limited minutes.
