Dzanan Musa suffers an injury in Bosnia’s FIBA qualifying match
The 29th overall pick of the 2018 NBA draft, Dzanan Musa, is the most recent rookie acquisition of the Brooklyn Nets. Their prized 19-year-old is slated to be a building block for the Nets’ future and is poised to be in action this upcoming season.
Unfortunately, Musa injured his right ankle in a game versus the Czech Republic for a FIBA World Cup qualifier. The nature of the recent injury is still unknown. It was earlier speculated that the injury was on his Achilles, but further reports reveal that it was on his ankle, which is favorably less serious than the former.
Musa took to Instagram regarding the status of the matter:

The photo shows him leaving the court with his teammates helping him off. Based on the mood of his social media status, it seems that the spirits are still high despite what has happened. It leaves us an impression that he will get to bounce back from the injury sooner rather than later.
In the loss against Bosnia, Musa still managed to rack up 15 points and four assists.
On a different note, the Nets would have liked to go into this upcoming season at full strength. With a recent string of bad luck due to the injuries to Musa and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, they might see themselves on opening night with a partial look at what they can do on the court.
Despite the current misfortune, knowing that the team now has a clear enough direction from their horrible past franchise decisions, is the silver lining that we can all look forward to going into the season.
