FIBA officially suspends the Lebanese Basketball Federation (FLB), this means the Lebanon national basketball team cannot participate in the upcoming 27th FIBA Asia Championship. Since FIBA cannot find a replacement for Lebanon, the FIBA Asia Championship is down to 15 teams, Group B will only have 3 teams and no team will be eliminated in the preliminary round.
