Kristaps Porzingis withdraws for Latvia in FIBA World Cup due to injury

Yet another NBA star will not see action in the much-anticipated FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 to be held in the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia.

Kristaps Porzingis announced his withdrawal from the national team of Latvia due to a foot injury.

He posted the decision on his social media account.

It is difficult, I feel very responsible to myself and the supporters of the Latvian national team, but a decision has been made that I will not play in the World Cup.

After several weeks of recovery and a repeat MRI examination, the plantar fasciitis of my foot still prevents me from being on the field in full readiness.

This joint decision has been made by both the medical staff and coaching staff of the national team, as well as the Celtics team – with the advice and opinion that it is now necessary to continue the recovery process.

Such a decision is not easy to make, but I promise that I will be there and support the team as much as I can.

Our land – Latvia! 🇱🇻💪

Translated from Latvia’s language.

He, along with other NBA superstars like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nikola Jokic will not suit up for the competition that will run from August 25 to September 10.
