Andres Nocioni joins Manu Ginobili on the sidelines for the world powerhouse. Nocioni injured his ankle in training with the team but may be able to go for the World Championships, according to FanHouse. The Championships start Aug. 25.

Even if he misses the first week Argentina should be in good shape for the first round of the worlds, the group stage. They still have on the roster Luis Scola , Carlos Delfino and Fabricio Oberto among a number of players with professional contracts overseas.
 
Nociono was traded to the Sixers this summer
