According to Olgun Uluc of FOX Sports Australia, Mitch Creek will replace injured Xavier Cooks in the roster of Australia.

Creek wasn’t initially included in Australia’s 12-man roster for the Basketball World Cup. However, Cooks suffered a serious knee injury and was ruled out of the tournament. Therefore, Creek will return to the squad to replace him.

The final roster of Australia also features Aron Baynes, Andrew Bogut, Jonah Bolden, Matthew Dellavedova, Cameron Gliddon, Chris Goulding, Joe Ingles, Nicholas Kay, Jock Landale, Patty Mills and Nathan Sobey.
