Nikola Mirotic took to Twitter and explained why he will not play for Spain in the 2019 Basketball World Cup.

Mirotic mentioned he wants to recover from the injuries he suffered in the NBA last season and wants to work in the summer in order to be 100% ready for his return to the EuroLeague with Barcelona.

The 28-year-old forward added, however, that he will be available for the next competitions. Mirotic signed a three-year contract with Barcelona a few days ago.
