Dzanan Musa scared the Brooklyn Nets when he limped off the court in his FIBA Qualifiers game, but it doesn’t look as serious as reported.
The Brooklyn Nets are looking for Dzanan Musa to continue the late first round magic that the franchise enjoyed with Jarrett Allen last season. But in order to do that, Musa needs to be healthy.
In an introductory press conference on Tuesday, Sean Marks and Kenny Atkinson discussed the state of the franchise. One of the first questions they were asked was whether or not Musa would be healthy after limping off the court in his (take a deep breath) FIBA 2019 World Cup European Qualifiers game. Marks said:
“Dzanan is currently getting an MRI. It’s to be determined. It’s not as serious as was posted out there, thankfully. All is well there. Both will be cleared and integrated into training camp.”
Marks is referring to Rondae Hollis-Jefferson when he says that both will be cleared. RHJ was injured in a charity even earlier in the summer.
Musa’s injury may have looked bad on the court and fans never like to see a player being helped off the floor, but Musa reassured everyone that he’s going to be just fine.
Thank God, It looked bad, but I will be back for my Brooklyn, for the beginning of the training camp!!! #WeGoHard pic.twitter.com/myBkxRMhKZ

Musa is confident that he’ll be back in time for training camp. The 6-foot-9 Bosnian acquitted himself well for his home country, but now he’s turning his focus completely onto the NBA season.
The Nets have a bright future in Brooklyn and Dzanan Musa may have had a minor scare, but he should be ready to hit the ground running.
