Chris Bosh is still hurting, and his Olympic plans are being pushed aside so he can heal. The Miami Heat forward told USA Basketball that he is withdrawing from consideration for the London Games so he can continue recovering from the strained abdominal muscle that sidelined him for a portion of his team's run to the NBA championship.

Bosh announced the decision through agent Henry Thomas one day after Heat teammate Dwyane Wade pulled out of the Olympic mix because of looming left knee surgery.

Lewis was entering the final year of a $118-million, six-year contract, which included a $13.7-million buyout provision for the last year of the deal.

Jordan's son arrested

Central Florida basketball player Marcus Jordan, the son of retired NBA great Michael Jordan, was arrested in Omaha, Neb., early Sunday following a disturbance outside a downtown hotel. According to a news release, police responding to a call at the Embassy Suites found hotel security trying to subdue Marcus Jordan, who was having an argument with two women in the hotel driveway at 2:11 a.m. CDT.

The release said Jordan was "very animated, intoxicated and uncooperative," and it took multiple officers to control and handcuff him.

Jordan was booked at the Douglas County Department of Corrections for resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing. He had been released by last night. Jordan, a rising senior, averaged 13.7 points a game for UCF last season.
