Golden State Warriors guard Nemanja Nedovic suffered a stress fracture in his right foot while training with the Serbian national team, per Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group:

The Warriors were informed guard Nemanja Nedovic suffered a stress fracture in his right foot while training with the Serbian national team for the FIBA World Cup, a Warriors spokesman said Tuesday.

The Warriors are waiting to review X rays to confirm the fracture after Nedovic reportedly suffered the injury while scoring five points in eight minutes in Sunday's 82-69 exhibition win against Bosnia in Italy.

A team doctor told Mondo.rs that Nedovic would return to Belgrade for an MRI exam on what's believed to be a fracture of the fifth metatarsal, adding that he would need to have it immobilized for three to four weeks if the fracture is confirmed.

This is unfortunate timing for Nedovic, who could have used international competition as a confidence-builder this summer heading into his sophomore season in the NBA. The injury will put more pressure on Milos Teodosic and Bogdan Bogdanovic in the FIBA World Cup.

Nedovic, the No. 30 overall pick in the 2013 draft, didn't get off the bench much as a rookie for Golden State. He averaged 9.4 points, 2.2 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game for the Warriors in summer league last month.
