While it remains to be seen if Bode Miller will return to racing, the U.S. ski team has certainly not counted him out.
On Thursday, officials included Miller's name on a list of nominees for their 2015-16 roster. The nominations included other stars such as Lindsey Vonn and Ted Ligety.
Miller severed his right hamstring tendon in a crash during the world championships at Beaver Creek, Colo., in February. At 37 -- hardly young for an elite athlete -- he planned to make a decision about his future after surgery.
The six-time Olympic medalist and his wife, Morgan Beck, are expecting a child this month.
Next season's U.S. ski team will be announced in the fall.
