Speaking to French portal BeBasket, Vucevic who may not have the chance to play for his national team any time soon, he explained why he things the new calendar will not work, “It’s complicated and it makes no sense”, said the Orlando Magic center. “It does not make sense if you do not close an agreement with the NBA and the Euroleague so that their players can compete. And then for us, Montenegro for example, what does it mean? That a player is going to qualify for the FIBA World Cup and I am coming back and I take his place for the tournament? It is not fair.”

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Dion Waiters and Justise Winslow looked good and showed no ill effects from their season-ending injuries last season in their first full practices back with the team Tuesday morning at Florida Atlantic University. “[Winslow has] been scrimmaging for a while. It was important for him to get those live reps. You would never be able to tell by his aggressiveness that he brought to this practice that he was coming off any kind of injury anywhere on his body. People felt his presence.”
Storyline: Dion Waiters Injury
Waiters, who signed a four-year, $52 million deal this summer, revealed at Heat Media Day Monday he still feels discomfort in his left ankle, which he badly sprained and cost him the final 13 games of the regular season. “It’s aching a little bit. But if I take a little Tylenol, I’ll be alright,” Waiters said Tuesday. “It’s going to be a process. But we know what we got to do, so it’s manageable. We just got to make sure we keep our eye on it and just keep getting treatment.”
