Chris Brown will not be rising from the ashes in Phoenix this weekend.
The 19-year-old had been tapped to introduce the players with Shaquille O'Neal before tip-off at Phoenix's US Airways Center. His "No Air" partner Jordin Sparks will be singing the national anthem.
"Chris Brown has withdrawn from NBA All-Star events," an NBA spokeswoman confirmed to E! News today.
The teen had also been planning to play Friday in the annual All-Star Celebrity Game, part of the weekend-long festivities.
