Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

Report: Warriors’ Nemanja Nedovic didn’t fracture foot, hopes to play for Serbia in FIBA World Cup


Nemanja Nedovic reportedly suffered a stress fracture in his foot earlier this summer that was of little concern to the Warriors, but would have kept him from playing for Serbia in the FIBA World Cup.

It appears that the injury was not as serious as originally believed, and Nedovic now hopes to be ready to participate in the international competition.

From Sportando.net (via HoopsHype):

Nemanja Nedovic did not fracture his foot and hopes to play with Serbia in the FIBA World Cup. All the examinations the point guard had were sent to the Warriors.

The Serbian point guard is waiting for the green light from the Warriors to play in Spain.

Nedovic is under contract with Golden State for the upcoming season, which is why permission would be needed for him to play at the Worlds given his medical condition.

But Nedovic is more of a development project than he is a key part of the team’s plans for next season, and that development has been slow, to the point the club has an unusually difficult decision to make regarding his contract for the 2016 season.

If the doctors’ reports check out from the Warriors perspective, Nedovic will play for Serbia later this month. He scored just 26 points in total in 24 appearances for Golden State last season, while averaging 5.9 minutes in those contests.

Welcome to America, Fenerbahce Ulker.

The Turkish powerhouse was in America playing some exhibition games this preseason, and they got a first-hand reminder that Kevin Durant is back. KD had 13 points in the Thunder’s easy 111-81 win.

Not to be outdone, Russell Westbrook got in on the act.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
