The Heat star tweeted, "Disappointed I can't play with my teammates on the road to the Gold this summer.  I want to thank everyone at #USAB for the great memories."

Bosh will rest an abdominal injury that forced him to miss several playoff games.

Another Heat star, Dwyane Wade, will also skip London.

Wade will undergo surgery on his knee.
