Bode out of Wednesday's slalom

ZAGREB, Croatia -- Bode Miller will miss a World Cup slalom race Wednesday in Zagreb to give his sore right ankle more time to rest.

The U.S. Ski Team announced in a release Monday that Miller, a two-time overall World Cup winner, is scheduled to rejoin the squad for races this weekend in Adelboden, Switzerland. He is on the mend from an ankle injury he suffered during a team volleyball game in Val d'Isere, France, on Dec. 12.

American skiers Ted Ligety, Tim Jitloff, Jimmy Cochran, David Chodounsky and Paul McDonald will take part in the race in Zagreb.
