Sweden won't know until the day of their clash with Bulgaria on Thursday if Detroit Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko can shake off an ankle injury and play in the crunch game. Jerebko got hurt in the second half of Monday night's home win against Luxembourg when he stepped on an opponent's ankle. The Swedish Federation has announced: "It's gratifying that there is no serious injury, but it is too early to say if Jonas can play against Bulgaria in the EuroBasket qualifier on 30 August. "We will take the decision on the day of the game," said team manager Jonte Karlsson. FIBA Europe

Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko is offering scholarships for his basketball camp June 18-21 at Rochester Adams High. "There are some children who never receive the opportunity to play a team sport," Jerebko said in a release. "A sport cannot fill the void of where a mom or dad should be, but the elements of team can grow a child strong in spite of his or her situation." Detroit Free Press

But when the Swedes participate in the Eurobasket 2013 Qualifiers, from mid-August through mid-September, Jerebko won't be wearing one. “I'm very disappointed,” he said. “Of course, I want to represent my country and play. But I'm looking forward to next summer and joining them again, and I wish them all the luck this summer. I'm definitely going to keep a close eye on it. “I know my teammates, on that team, will understand my decision after coming off an injury like that, so I'm not really worried about it. I'm just looking forward to playing with them next summer and I wish them all the luck.” Booth Newspapers

Jerebko shot 8-for-14 from the field — including 3 of 4 from 3-point range — and scored 16 points in the first half as Detroit built a 52-44 advantage at the intermission. “Jonas is great,” said coach Lawrence Frank. “One of the things that was a consistent thing was how hard he worked at rehab. He basically lived with Arnie Kander. It speaks volumes about his dedication to come back from an injury like that. Meeting Jonas and seeing how hard he works you can see why. “When you look at the two preseason games and now we've played four regular-season games, each game he gains more confidence and more rhythm and he looks more and more comfortable out there. That's an encouraging sign.” Booth Newspapers

The Pistons saw enough in his promising rookie season that he signed a four-year, $18-million deal before the start of camp, but Jerebko admitted at media day Wednesday that he had a small case of jitters before his first scrimmage this week. "First scrimmage -- I'm not going to lie -- I was a little nervous, and I had a few decisions that weren't the usual decision for me. But right now I'm feeling great," Jerebko said. "I don't feel rusty, but we'll see when the games start. "My first game might be a little rusty, but I'm feeling great. I don't feel like I've been away from the game at all. I watched 82 games from the side, so I just kind of feel like trying to play smarter." Detroit Free Press
