Opals centre Liz Cambage will warm up for the Olympics in the WNBA All-Star game, which will be her fourth appearance in the marquee match.
The July 14 match in Las Vegas sees a WNBA selection take on the US national team, before heading to Tokyo.
Four of the league's top five scorers will don Team USA jerseys, led by veteran Tina Charles (Washington) at 26.3 points and 10.0 rebounds per game.
Connecticut's Jonquel Jones (Bosnia and Herzegovina), averaging 21 points and a league-high 11.1 boards, will play for the WNBA side alongside Cambage.
Cambage, 29, has been a standout for the Las Vegas Aces in the WNBA this season, averaging 14.8 points and 9.1 rebounds.
The Australian is currently in a pre-Olympic camp in Las Vegas with the national squad but was given permission by team coach Sandy Brondello to suit up for the All-Star game.
It coincides with a day off for the Opals.
The world No.3-ranked Australians will play a warm-up game against Team USA on July 16.
