Juancho Hernangomez Reportedly Upset with T-Wolves After Being Blocked from Olympics

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Juancho Hernangomez is reportedly upset with the organization.

Per The Athletic's Jon Krawczynski, Hernangomez's frustration stems from the T-Wolves' decision to block him from playing for Spain in the Olympics.

Krawczynski added Spanish Basketball Federation officials believe Minnesota president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas made a "last-minute decision" to prevent the 25-year-old from playing with his home country.

In a statement released Saturday, Rosas said the Timberwolves team physician recommended Hernangomez not play for the Spanish national team.

Hernangomez suffered a dislocated shoulder during one of Spain's scrimmages leading up to the Tokyo Games.
