Serbia, in Group B of the next World Cup (August 25-September 10) along with Puerto Rico, China and South Sudan, will have to be without their superstar Nikola Jokic, according to Mozzart Sport. The pivot, double reigning MVP and NBA champion with the Denver Nuggets, has chosen to give up on this World Cup, qualifying for the 2024 Olympics.
Serbian coach Svetislav Pesic will have to do without his centerpiece to try to win a medal. Because since 2017, Serbia has not won a single charm. Another part of the Serbian selection Vasilije Micic, freshly signed by Oklahoma City in the NBA, is also skipping this World Cup.
