In a series of tweets Friday by both Bojan Bogdanovic and reporters covering the Croatian national team, concern over Bogdanovic's injury lessened.

The Nets swingman injured his right ankle during the third quarter of Thursday's friendly against Bosnia, in preparation for Eurobasket 2015. After the game, Bogdanovic released the following statement on the status of his injury.

On Friday morning, Bogdanovic tweeted that he would not play in the "finals" of the friendly prep tournament against Israel because of his ankle.

Igor Marinovic, who covers basketball in that corner of the world, offered this in an email to NetsDaily: "Bojan is fine. Just couple days of rest and it will be like never happened."

Later, Marinovic, who has written for NetsDaily, noted that Croatia's team doctor had cleared both Bogdanovic and Sixer draft pick Dario Saric, for light workouts Monday.

Croatia beat Israel handily with Mario Hezonja, the Magic rookie, filling in for Bogdanovic. At 9-0, Croatia went undefeated in Eurobasket with Bogdanovic playing some fantastic basketbal. Eurobasket tips off on September 5.
