China unveiled on Monday its national men's basketball team roster for FIBA Asia Cup 2022 later this month.

The 12-man team features Zhao Rui, Xu Jie, Hu Mingxuan, Sun Minghui, Jiang Weize, Zhou Qi, Wang Zhelin, Fan Ziming, Zhai Xiaochuan, Gu Quan, He Xining and Fu Hao.

These players were selected after evaluating their physical conditions and schedule, as several members of the Chinese side playing in the FIBA World Cup Asian qualifiers in Australia tested positive for COVID-19 last week, concerned team officials explained.

During the 2022 FIBA Asia Cup to be held in Jakarta, Indonesia from July 12 to 24, China will face South Korea, Bahrain and Chinese Taipei in Group B on July 12, 14 and 16 respectively.
