Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic was reportedly pulled from Serbia’s game against Estonia due to knee pain, according to Serbian reporter Nikola Stojkovic.
Bogdanovic started and played three minutes before coming out of the game with pain in the same knee that was operated on in April.
According to Stojkovic, the team doctors said the injury isn’t considered serious but they’ll reevaluate Bogdanovic tomorrow.
Serbia’s World Cup qualifiers have concluded, so even if he is okay he won’t be suiting up for them again this year.
Bogdanovic, for what it’s worth, totaled 19 points, four rebounds, two assists and three steals in Serbia’s first game against Greece. His Serbian teammate and newly acquired King Nemanja Bjelica managed nine points and 12 rebounds against Greece, and 14 points, six rebounds and three steals against Estonia.
Training camp commences at the end of this month, with preseason beginning in October.
