Jonas Jerebko injures ankle in FIBA EuroBasket play

Via Os Davis of Ball In Europe, Jonas Jerebko injured his ankle playing for Sweden in a win over Luxembourg on Tuesday:

The Detroit Piston was injured in Tuesday’s win against Luxembourg; while the injury is not deemed serious (he certainly won’t miss any NBA games), it comes nevertheless at a seriously bad time for the Swedes. Currently at 2-2, Team Sweden is statistically tied with Azerbaijan and Bulgaria for second place in Group B with four games to play. The top two to three teams from the group will advance to the next round.

Jerebko is reportedly a game-time decision for Sweden’s game Thursday against Bulgaria.

    Lost in the discussion is the fact that Jerebko was injured while playing against Luxembourg. Luxembourg. I’m reasonably certain my Saturday pickup game could put together a better starting 5.
