Warriors’ Ognjen Kuzmic sidelined with stress reaction in left leg

Warriors center Ognjen Kuzmic has a stress reaction in his left leg and will be sidelined for about four weeks, making him unable to participate in training for Serbia’s FIBA World Cup team.

The 7-foot Kuzmic, who averaged 3.3 points and 8.3 rebounds in four NBA Summer League games last month, is expected to be ready for training camp, according to the Warriors.

After having been named a candidate in June to make the Serbian team, Kuzmic joined Warriors teammates Andrew Bogut, Andre Iguodala and David Lee in skipping World Cup training for to health-related reasons.
