Warriors’ Nemanja Nedovic to miss FIBA World Cup, according to agent

Warriors guard Nemanja Nedovic, who suffered a foot injury earlier this month while playing for Serbia’s national team, will miss the FIBA World Cup, according to his agent.

“After last medical check, there is no doubt,” agent Misko Raznatovic tweeted Wednesday. “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.

After the Serbian team previously informed the Warriors that Nedovic suffered a stress fracture, it later announced that test results did not confirm their fears of a fifth metatarsal fracture.

Nedovic remained sidelined since going down Aug. 3 during an exhibition game against Bosnia in Italy.
