You can watch Team USA's last two practice games over at FIBAtv.com. They play Spain on Sunday in Madrid for the first time since they met in Beijing in 2008. On Wednesday, they meet a battle-tested Greece team.

Rajon Rondo's in good position to be the starting point guard. The team still has to cut one of the five guards left. Stephen Curry sprained his left ankle a couple days ago, but after practicing today he said he'll be good enough to play this weekend.

The Golden State guard took part in the non-contact training Friday at the Magic Box center in Madrid. He says he's "80 percent" a day before the U.S. plays Lithuania in a world championship warmup match. The U.S. plays defending world champion Spain on Sunday. Curry is trying to make the Aug. 28-Sept. 12 tournament in Turkey, with one player still to be cut from the 13-man roster.

The FIBA World Championship starts Aug. 28 and all 80 games can be seen on FIBAtv.com
