Jazz guard Raja Bell is listed on the Virgin Islands' roster for the 2011 Caribbean Championship. Bell said Saturday that he won't play in the tournament, though, and Virgin Islands Basketball Federation President Usie Richards confirmed Bell's decision not to participate.
"That is correct," Richards said Sunday. "He was scheduled to play but will not be participating in the CBC Championships in the Bahamas, but it was [too] late to add a replacement player."
The tournament is scheduled from July 23 to Aug. 7 in Nassau, Bahamas. Virgin Islands opens play Sunday with a contest against Antigua.
