After initial reports claiming that Bojan Bogdanovic would sit out for Croatia's matchup against Macedonia, the script has changed throughout the day that he will indeed play, despite suffering a concussion against Slovenia just a few days ago.
NetsDaily's own Igor Marinovic has us covered.

Despite the hard fall, Bojan's coach claimed that he wanted to return to action against the Slovenians. He didn't return, but his toughness and passion is something Nets fans should be smiling about. The injury, well, not so much.
Unlike the NBA, FIBA does not have "Concussion Rules," which predetermines how much time he would have to miss. Therefore after sitting out against Greece, Bojan's status was "day-to-day". With his eagerness to return in the game in which he was injured, you could never be too sure what his decision would've been against Macedonia.
Without Bogdanovic, the Croatians suffered their first defeat against one of their toughest competitors in Greece, 72-70.
After injuring his ankle last week and being concussed just a few days ago, Bojan has injected quite the scare into Nets fans. Still, he's going to tough out the injuries and and play for the pride of his country.
