Boomers Olympic Plan B

I wonder what the scenario would have been if the boomers lost the majority of their players if Beal had coughed on a few during their game and tested positive?
Is there a plan b, players ready to take their place in Tokyo, or send a shorthanded team, or worst case forfeit? Saw an athlete can't go because she's tested positive, wonder if it could happen to a team. Would imagine a lot of b team players haven't been vaccinated either if in Australia.

I'd rather forfeit than send out a bunch of complete randoms and hope for the best. But I don't think it will come to that I think we "should" be fine. I mean, Beal was with his team every day in close quarters, training, eating, and we have no evidence of any of them having it. Chances are we are alright. Certainly hope so anyway!

It doesn't look like Bradley Beal was vaccinated.

Ben Simmons to answer the call in one of our nations darkest basketball moments. He along with Thon Maker, Motum and Bogut coming out of retirement lead a bunch of NBL players to a bronze medal. Cottons citizenship paperwork also gets rushed through and Lemanis makes a return as coach.

Different Olympic confederation. We had divers withdrawal as they could not be vaccinated in time.
