Warriors guard Nemanja Nedovic will not be playing for Serbia when the FIBA World Cup begins in Spain on Aug. 30 after his agent revealed that has been ruled out due to a lingering injury to his right foot.

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

Nedovic injured his foot playing with Serbia's national team earlier this month. It was originally reported as a stress fracture, but that diagnosis was softened as an MRI revealed no fracture.

Still, the injury will keep him from the upcoming international tournament -- as expected when he suffered the injury -- and the Warriors plan to evaluate their investment when he arrives stateside.

Nedovic tweeted this photo with his right leg in a cast on Aug. 6:

The 23-year old was drafted by the Warriors in the first round (30th pick) of the 2013 NBA Draft. He scored 26 points in 142 minutes over 24 games as a rookie last season.
