Warriors’ Nemanja Nedovic foot injury diagnosis not ‘definitive’ after MRI exam as Steve Kerr stays positive

WALNUT CREEK — Warriors guard Nemanja Nedovic underwent an MRI exam on his right foot that according to the Serbian national team did not result in a diagnosis Thursday, but Steve Kerr appeared optimistic despite saying surgery is being discussed.

“Fortunately, it doesn’t appear to be a long-term recovery,” the Warriors coach said.

“I think there’s a chance he could be ready for camp. If not, then short thereafter.”

Nedovic suffered the injury on Sunday while playing for Serbia in an exhibition game in Italy in preparation for the FIBA World Cup.

Serbian national team doctor Dragan Radovanovic said in a statement that because the MRI exam conducted in Belgrade was not definitive, Nedovic would undergo more exams in the coming days.

Nedovic told NBASerbia.com he had no pain in the foot despite tweeting out a photo of himself wearing a cast for his leg.
