At first sight, Vasilije Micic's injury during Serbia's 2023 World Cup Qualifiers game against Greece on Thursday night didn't look good.

The Anadolu Efes star was groaning in pain and had to be carried off the court as he was unable to step on his foot after he sprained his right ankle in the second quarter.

After the match, Serbian national team coach, Svetislav Pesic, stated that the player's condition didn't look well, adding that the medical team would do their best.

For more than 24 hours, no one could really tell how serious his injury was, although the player himself was quick to reassure that he could return to action quite soon. 

But now, the mystery seems to have been solved. According to Mozzartsport, Micic joined the Serbian national team that traveled to Turkey to play hosts Turkey at the Sinan Erdem Sports Hall (20:00 CEST).

It is still unknown whether the 28-year-old guard will play in that game, but judging by the fact that he was included in the 14-man squad means that there is a chance that he might play. 

After beating Greece, Serbia stand at 2-3 in their group, but they're still next-to-bottom. The same goes for Turkey, who were blown out by Latvia (111-85), behind an unprecedented three-point avalanche (20 shots made) by the hosts.
