Curry won't be part of US basketball team at Rio Olympics

Washington (dpa) - NBA star Stephen Curry will not play in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro because of a recent ankle and knee injuries.

Curry, who has led the Golden State Warriors to the NBA finals, made the announcement Monday.

"After a great deal of internal thought and several discussions with my family, the Warriors and my representatives, I‘ve elected to withdraw my name from the list of eligible players on Team USA‘s preliminary roster for the 2016 Summer Games in Brazil," Curry said.

Curry is the reigning two-time NBA Most Valuable Player. He has never played in the Olympics.

Curry said his previous experiences with the US national basketball team "have been incredibly rewarding, educational and enjoyable," calling it "an extremely difficult decision" to skip the Rio Games.

He cited his recent ankle and knee injuries, saying "I believe this is the best decision for me at this stage of my career."

"It‘s an incredible honor to represent your country and wear ‘USA‘ on your chest, but my primary basketball-related objective this summer needs to focus on my body and getting ready for the 2016-17 NBA season," he said.

Curry missed four games during the Warriors‘ postseason, but returned to the lineup May 9 and has helped lead the Warriors to their second straight appearance in the NBA Finals.
