BEIJING -- Spanish guard Jose Calderon is expected to miss Sunday's gold-medal game against the United States.
That was the word coming late Saturday night from Toronto Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo, who discussed the matter with members of the Spanish basketball federation.
"We're all on the same page on this," Colangelo told ESPN.com, saying Calderon is "definitely out."
Members of the Spanish federation could not immediately be reached for comment, and it is not entirely out of the question that Calderon still could play.
Argentina's Andres Nocioni had been told before Friday's semifinal game against the United States that he should sit out to avoid aggravating a knee injury, but Nocioni disregarded that advice and came off the bench in Argentina's 101-81 loss to Team USA.
If Calderon does not play, Raul Lopez and Ricky Rubio are expected to share point-guard duties for Spain. Calderon had come off the bench in Spain's final four games of the preliminary round, and he sat out the semifinal victory over Lithuania.
Tipoff for Sunday's gold medal game is 2:30 p.m. local time (2:30 a.m. EDT).
