Anybody know why Shane dropped off Team USA?

"USA Basketball also announced that two players who participated in the senior squad's July training, Shane Battier (Houston Rockets) and Kirk Hinrich (Chicago Bulls), and Senior National Team member Greg Oden (Portland Trail Blazers) who missed the July training after under going a tonsillectomy, have withdrawn from the August training and from consideration for the USA Team that will compete in the FIBA Americas Championship."

It is because of a family matter that he pulled out.
