The Greek Basketball Federation announced that preparation of the national team ahead of the EuroBasket will take place without Tyler Dorsey.

Dorsey sustained an ankle injury during an Atlanta Hawks win over the Chicago Bulls in the Las Vegas Summer League and his rehabilitation won’t be completed until mid August as his agent, Chris Emens informed the Federation via a letter. Hence it’s impossible for the player to be able to present in this summer’s ventures.

The Greek-American combo guard was recently signed by the Atlanta Hawks who selected him in the NBA Draft with their 41st overall pick.

Right now the roster of the Greek national team is down to 15 players: Giannis Antetokounmpo, George Papagiannis, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, Nick Calathes, Georgios Printezis, Dimitris Agravanis, Vangelis Mantzaris, Kostas Mitoglou, George Bogris, Giannis Bourousis, Zach Auguste, Kostas Papanikolaou, Ioannis Papapetrou, Nikos Pappas and Kostas Sloukas.

Greece is facing France, Poland, Slovenia, Iceland and hosts Finland in Group A of the EuroBasket.
