Nedovic reportedly sustained the injury in a Sunday exhibition game against Bosnia. From the Bay Area News Group report: 

"A team doctor told that Nedovic would return to Belgrade for an MRI exam on what’s believed to be a fracture of the fifth metatarsal, adding that he would need to have it immobilized for three to four weeks if the fracture is confirmed."

He appeared in just 24 games last season, and averaged 1.1 points and 5.9 minutes per contest. Nedovic got more playing time in Summer League in July, averaging 9.4 points, 2.2 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game.
