Warriors informed Nemanja Nedovic suffered stress fracture in right foot while training with Serbia

The Warriors were informed guard Nemanja Nedovic suffered a stress fracture in his right foot while training with the Serbian national team for the FIBA World Cup, a Warriors spokesman said Tuesday.

The Warriors are waiting to review X rays to confirm the fracture after Nedovic reportedly suffered the injury while scoring five points in eight minutes in Sunday’s 82-69 exhibition win against Bosnia in Italy.

A team doctor told Mondo.rs that Nedovic would return to Belgrade for an MRI exam on what’s believed to be a fracture of the fifth metatarsal, adding that he would need to have it immobilized for three to four weeks if the fracture is confirmed.

Nedovic could be the second Warriors player on the Serbian team to miss the World Cup, as center Ognjen Kuzmic has already been ruled out due to a stress reaction in his left leg.
