U.S. ski officials waiting to see if Bode Miller will return

Bode Miller nominated for 2015-16 U.S. ski team roster despite concerns he might retire

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.
