SALTA (2010 FIBA World Championship) - Andres Nocioni is working in the pool as he begins his rehabilitation from a sprained ankle.
The Philadelphia 76ers star was hurt in practice on Saturday night, but team doctor Diego Grippo is confident he can be fit in time for the FIBA World Championship.
While the rest of the Argentina squad are continuing their warm-ups by playing in the Super 4 Tournament this week, Nocioni could be found in the swimming pool as he begins strengthening the ankle.
"The pool is essential to accelerate the process of rehabilitation at this stage," said team physio Jorge Paez.
Nocioni remains confident he can soon return to action.
"The whole team is supporting me and I am working with the doctors to recover as soon as possible," he said.
