Nemanja Bjelica out of Rio 2016

Serbia will be without the services of Minnesota Timberwolves forward Nemanja Bjelica at the Rio Olympics, which start August 6.

Bjelica will not recover in time from his right foot injury that also kept him out of the FIBA Olympic Qualifiers.

But despite Bjelica’s absence, Serbia will be considered one of the top nations in Rio.

They will face USA, France, Venezuela, China and Australia in the group stages of the Olympics.
