Check out some of the people and organizations USA Basketball is following with this week’s USA Basketball Social Media Roundup:

USA Basketball wasn’t the only place sending out thoughts and prayers on Wednesday morning upon hearing the news that 2014 FIBA World Cup gold medalist and Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose will be undergoing yet another knee surgery and will miss the rest of the NBA season. Among the many others who have sent Rose their best wishes via Twitter are USA Basketball players LeBron James, Paul George and Elena Delle Donne, and University of Kentucky head coach John Calipari, who was Rose’s college coach at the University of Memphis in 2008.
