LAS VEGAS -- Chicago Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler will not practice this week on Team USA's Select Team because of a slightly strained groin, USA Basketball announced Sunday.

The Select Team will practice against Team USA this week in advance of the national team's participation in the World Cup of Basketball in Spain in late August.

Butler was one of several Bulls scheduled to participate this week in the camp. Rookie Doug McDermott is on the Select Team, while point guard Derrick Rose is hoping to make the cut for the national team. Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau is an assistant on Team USA's staff under head Mike Krzyzewski.
