Which NBA players are playing within the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers?


Nikola Jokic will represent Serbia, while Luka Doncic will return for Slovenia.

After taking greater than a month-long break from FIBA, the motion returns for the 2023 World Cup Qualifiers second round of play. The European region is about to kick things off this Wednesday with a six-game slate.

On this upcoming qualifying window, 39 NBA players will probably be participating, with some recent additions including Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets), Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks), Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota Timberwolves) and Mac McClung (Golden State Warriors). Other players like Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks) and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City Thunder) will return after participating in the primary round that took place late June through early July. The Americas region will even have essentially the most NBA players available with 18 players, including a team-high 4 Indiana Pacers.
