The Warriors were informed guard Nemanja Nedovic suffered a stress fracture in his right foot and are awaiting confirmation of the severity of the injury, a Warriors spokesman said Tuesday.

Nedovic injured his right foot while training with the Serbian national team for the FIBA World Cup. 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 and that he would need to have it immobilized for three to four weeks if the fracture is confirmed.

The latest injury for Nedovic is unrelated to right foot inflammation he suffered from last season, according to the Warriors. Nedovic missed 22 games because of health-related issues during his rookie season while appearing in 24 regular-season games.

Nedovic, 23, could be the second Warriors player on the Serbian team to miss the World Cup, as center Ognjen Kuzmic has already been ruled out because of a stress reaction in his left leg suffered during NBA Summer League.
