From FOX Sports - November 14, 2017

NEW YORK (AP)Tournament MVP Jameel Warney and three other players who helped the U.S. win the AmeriCup gold medal will suit up for the Americans in their first two Basketball World Cup qualifying games.

The Americans will play Puerto Rico on Nov. 23 in Orlando, Florida, a game moved from Puerto Rico because of hurricane damage. The U.S. will host Mexico three nights later in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The U.S. is relying on G League players, with NBA players unavailable for the windows during the season. Besides Warney, who plays for the Texas Legends, Larry Drew II (Sioux Falls Skyforce), Reggie Hearn (Reno Bighorns) and Xavier Munford (Wisconsin Herd) played for Jeff Van Gundy when the Americans went 5-0 and won AmeriCup gold in September.
