A couple weeks back, it was reported that Warriors’ guard Nemanja Nedovic suffered a stress fracture in his foot that would cause him to miss out on playing for Serbia in the FIBA World Cup.

It was later revealed that the injury was not a fracture, which gave Nedovic hope that Golden State would allow him to participate after a review of his medical records.

But the recovery hasn’t gone as expected, and the injury remains a concern.

From Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group:

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.

Nedovic is a development project for the Warriors, and someone who isn’t expected to be a part of the team’s rotation in the immediate future. He scored just 26 points in total in 24 appearances for Golden State last season, while averaging 5.9 minutes in those contests.
