Sara Blicavs has been given a late call-up to the Tokyo Olympics after Liz Cambage's withdrawal from the Opals squad.
Blicavs, whose father and mother both represented Australia in basketball, will make her Olympics debut.
Basketball Australia confirmed on Monday that Cambage is under a code of conduct and integrity investigation for an incident during last week's pre-Games scrimmage against Nigeria.
Opals star Cambage revealed last Friday that she was pulling out of the Olympics, citing mental-health reasons.
"When you face some kind of adversity, when someone leaves the team, it means that you can replace them," Opals coach Sandy Brondello said on Tuesday.
"This is a dream that we all want to achieve in our careers and Sara's been playing great.
"It was really hard to pick that final 12, Sara really was so close to making this team.
"It's nothing that she didn't do, it was more about the balance of the team.
"To make that call the other day to say that she's the player we want made me happy."
