Pietrus fails physical, won't play in Europe

France had hoped to have Phoenix Suns sharpshooter Mickael Pietrus in their squad this summer when they attempt to qualify for the London Games but the country’s basketball federation have ruled him out on medical grounds.

All of the players in the French preliminary squad have been given medical examinations at the INSEP in Paris this week, including Pietrus, a 29-year-old swingman who has been hindered by a wrist injury in the past.

The French Basketball Federation said: “Following several medical examinations carried out at the beginning of preparations and after consulting the medical staff of Team France, Mickael Pietrus will not play at EuroBasket 2011 for medical reasons.”

Read the article carefully. It says for medical reasons.

He is going to have KNEE surgery, that's why. According to the suns it's a minor surgery.

Pietrus is a good guy but yea, with Batum and Gelabele (will be 2nd best on the French team imo), this loss won't be too bad.

In other news, Serge Ibaka received Spanish citizenship and will play for them in the Eurobasket.
