Warriors’ Nemanja Nedovic fractured fifth metatarsal in right foot, according to Serbia

Warriors guard Nemanja Nedovic fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot, Serbian national team doctor Dragan Radovanovic said in a statement Wednesday.

The Warriors had previously been informed that there was a stress fracture in the foot that sidelined Nedovic, who went down Aug. 3 while playing in an exhibition game in Italy and now appears to be out for the FIBA World Cup.

Radovanovic delivered the news based on what he said was new information after previously announcing Aug. 8 that tests could not confirm the fifth metatarsal fracture.

“After last medical check, there is no doubt,” agent Misko Raznatovic tweeted. “Nemanja Nedovic, unfortunately, will miss World Cup in Spain. He needs to travel to Usa, on Sat.”

The Warriors said Friday that Nedovic was suffering from right foot inflammation as they looked to make a further review of the guard’s condition. Serbia coach Aleksandar Dordevic told reporters on the same day that the injury was a “delicate” one.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said earlier this month surgery was being discussed for the foot injury.
