Injured Joakim Noah off French Olympic hoops team

Posted: Updated:

PARIS (AP) - Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah will not play for France at the London Olympics because of the left ankle injury sustained during the NBA playoffs.

Noah told L'Equipe he was "absolutely not ready. Not ready to run, not ready to jump."

The 12 players who will represent France are to be announced Thursday.

It's still unclear whether San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker will make the cut after a scratch to his cornea in a fight involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake's entourage.

France's Olympics opener is against the United States on July 29.
