Suns forward Amare Stoudemire was sent home by USA Basketball coaches & administrators today, and will not travel with other NBA stars on this summer's World Championship squad.

Stoudemire has a child on the way and is still rehabbing from microfracture surgery last year.  Managing director and former Suns leader Jerry Colangelo said that Amare needs more time to rehab his knee to be at full strength for the NBA season.

Amare is still part of the 24 man roster selected to participate for USA Basketball through the 2008 Olympics; he's just been removed from this year's squad, now down to 14 players.
