I don't think it was lazyness on Disney's part they weren't put in.
Sitka,as said before,was a spirit and had no real point in appearing in this.
Denhai was in the village and as said at the end of the first movie"I passed the story of my brother to my people"
Also something to think,the actor who voiced Denhai,Jason Raize, commited suicide in 2004, two years before the movie came out. I am guessing, but maybe Disney didn't want the character Denhai in as a memorial to Jason?
Well, it is possible that respect for Jason Raize was one of their reasons; or rather, it's not impossible. There's no evidence for or against it.
But the simplest answer is usually the correct one, and the simplest answer here is that he was left out simply because, while Denahi was very important to the story of Brother Bear, he wasn't important to this story. When you have to tell a story in around seventy minutes, and every single detail costs money, it's very important to keep things as simple as possible.

Sad as that sounds, Espesi is right. I remember when I saw Kung Fu Panda 2 over the summer, I grew disappointed that Shifu didn't have that many scenes to share as his part in the sequel was....well...very small. Not like it was in the first film. That's just a little example.
We may be pissed, bummed out, or midly sad that our favorite characters have a tiny role in future sequels, or if they never appear at all, but that's just how the way things run in life. There are some things that CAN'T always be needed when you have to think how the tale will run.
