Default The only information I could find about Bayless playing for the US Select sqaud

Speaking of rookie guards, the Sonics’ Russell Westbrook played with the Select Team today, donning a jersey with No. 41 on it. He had been a guest at practice the last three days watching from the stands, but apparently somebody decided to give him a uniform. J.R. Smith also has a jersey on after being a bystander the rest of the week.

Select Team coach P.J. Carlesimo said that Mayo had to go home after Wednesday and Blazers rookie Jerryd Bayless was hurt with a lingering hand injury from summer league so he appreciated Westbrook and Smith helping out.

The senior team and the select squad played four five-minute scrimmages. The senior team won all four. In the first and fourth games, Coach K's crew won handily, but P.J. Carlesimo's young pups put a scare into them in the second and third games. The second match was decided by a LeBron James game-winning pull-up jumper on Jerryd Bayless with 2.0 seconds left and in the third game Kobe Bryant got hot in the last couple minutes to get the win after the Select Team jumped out to a big early lead.

Not too informative but it sucks he was suffering from a hand injury. It sounds minor and lets hope it is.

Anyone else find out any information about his time playing for the US Select team? They dont release too much info about the scrimmages which sucks.

Yeah, it seems like limited info. I wish they had been televised.
