During Game 1 of the AdmiralBet ABA League Finals, Nikola Topic experienced a non-contact injury that left fans and scouts concerned.

This isn’t Nikola Topic’s first encounter with knee issues. In January, he suffered a left knee ligament injury that kept him sidelined for nearly four months. Despite his recovery, the recent setback raises questions about his draft stock.

Draft Implications

Before this latest injury, Nikola Topic was considered a consensus top-5 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft. However, concerns surrounding his knee could potentially affect his draft position. The San Antonio Spurs, who hold the fourth overall pick, had even been linked to Topic as a potential option.
