However, the team has not been officially notified of any withdrawal.
A meeting is scheduled this afternoon to discuss the team's involvement in the Games.
The caretaker Cabinet decided on Wednesday to prevent Team Samoa from travelling to Japan due to Covid-19.
The caretaker Minister of Communications, Afamasaga Rico Tupa'i, said that with reports Japan has a 500 daily infection rate, the Cabinet decided prevention takes precedence.
Afamasaga said the decision was made because the chance of infection was too high.
