09:00 AM ET 04.20 | That Dwight Howard is done for the season has implications that reach all the way to London. The developments with Howard mean that Knicks center Tyson Chandler is a virtual lock to replace him, sources said. With Lamar Odom likely out of the Olympic mix, too, Miami's Chris Bosh -- who like Odom has played the five spot internationally -- also is a likely addition to the USA roster, sources said. A third spot could open up for Timberwolves rebounding and 3-point-shooting machine Kevin Love, with Blake Griffin and Rudy Gay also expected to get serious consideration. How healthy Derrick Rose is this summer after what is expected to be a long playoff run also could impact the Team USA roster, which, like the Magic, suddenly is in upheaval.
