ESPN reported Tatum's status as day-to-day and his absence precautionary.

Team USA defeated Argentina 108-80.

Tatum struggled in the Americans' 91-83 loss against Australia on Monday night, scoring only eight points on 4-for-12 shooting and missing all six of his 3-point attempts.

The loss marked the first American men's basketball team to lose back-to-back games since 1992, when professionals were first allowed to play for the U.S.

Tatum, 23, scored 15 points with seven rebounds in Team USA's upset loss to Nigeria.
