Rui Hachimura will sit out Japan's final two games in the FIBA World Cup due to knee discomfort and fatigue.

"While everyone had hoped for Rui to finish the World Cup with Team Japan, the Wizards and Japan Basketball believe it is best for Rui to not play the final two games and have a short period of rest before he must start NBA training camp with the Wizards which begins only three weeks from now," announced the Japanese Basketball Association in a statement through the Wizards.

Hachimura was held to 4 points in Japan's 98-45 loss to Team USA on Thursday.
