Default Amare Stoudemire Will Not Play In The World Basketball Championships

Phoenix Suns All-Star forward Amare Stoudemire will not be taking part in the World Basketball Championships in Japan.

"He's just not physically far enough long," Colangelo said. "But this was good for him. He did play up."

Still working his way back from knee surgery last October, STAT's omission will not preclude him from playing in the 2008 Olympics.

This is probaly a good thing. He should just take it easy for a bit and rest up his knee. Then when the season comes he will be in better shape. I would have loved to see him play in the Worlds though.

It is a good thing. I want Amare to rest his knee so it is at 100% by the time the season starts. He means so much to this team and we need him to make that next step in the play-offs.

That's good to hear. I didn't think he was gonna play much anyway, or at all, mainly due to the birth of his child coming up along with the knee.
