Greivis Vasquez Won't Play In FIBA Americas
Greivis Vasquez will not participate in FIBA Americas for Venezuela.
Vasquez is recovering from ankle surgery.
"My ankle is much better and Dr (Richard) Ferkel told me that I have his permission to begin training on the pick-and-roll, lateral movements and changes in direction," he said.
"He stressed that I need a gradual recovery to reach my optimum level.
"I would like to play (at the FIBA Americas Championship), it's a desire that I feel in my heart, but at the same time I understand this is the correct decision.
"I am sure that I will be an important player in the future of the national team of Venezuela."
