Warriors Injury Update: Nemanja Nedovic did not fracture foot, hopes to play in FIBA World Cup


By on 8/12/2014 04:30:00 PM

The Golden State Warriors had a solid 51-win season in 2013-2014, but lost in the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Warriors look to improve this training camp on their 10th ranked offense and defense. But in order to do so, they need a healthy roster. One concern is the status of backup guard Nemanja Nedovic, who injured his foot. Fortunately, the injury may not be as serious as originally thought and Nedovic still hopes to play in the FIBA World Cup.

As reported by James Herbert of CBSSports.com, the Warriors were informed that Nedovic suffered a stress fracture in his right foot last week while playing for the Serbian national team. Now it's been reported that is was not a fracture and Nedovic wants to play in the upcoming World Cup.

There is an agreement between FIBA and the NBA that his professional team can sit him out of international competition. The Warriors have yet to comment on the situation, but Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that surgery may be required, so it appears unlikely Nedovic will play in a few days, unless the injury is far less severe than originally anticipated.

Nedovic, a 23-year old point guard from Yugoslavia, saw limited action in his rookie season with the Warriors. He appeared in 24 games and averaged just 1.1 points on a dismal 20.4 percent shooting from the floor, in 5.9 minutes per game.
