Celtics center Greg Stiemsma has withdrawn from the USA Select Team because of the plantar fasciitis in his left foot. The USA Select Team practices against Team USA in Las Vegas and is the entry team for the U.S. Olympic Team program.

Stiemsma, a restricted free agent, did not practice or participate in shootarounds because of the plantar fasciitiis in the left foot and a bone bruise in the right foot. The Celtics have the right to match any offer for Stiemsma.
