The Slovenian national team will be playing a lot of friendly games in preparation for the world cup, a few of them will be played in China, sort of a mini tournament, basically the same as last year.
As a part of the arrangement with the Suns, who are of course trying to limit the potential injuries to their star PG, especially in friendly games (as Goran really doesn't need that much practice as we know), Goran Dragic will not be travelling with the team to the first round of friendlies in China.
He will instead stay in Slovenia and work following an individual program.
(P.S. I'll probably create a twitter account during the actual tournament to tweet stuff like this.)
