Serbia is expected to rule out another player ahead of the FIBA EuroBasket in September (1-18). Aleksa Avramovic is expected to miss the tournament, as he is dealing with a right hand injury.
According to Mozzart Sport, Avramovic will miss a couple of months and will return to action in early October.
