Katarina Ristic has been ruled out of Slovenia's EuroBasket Women Division B campaign with a knee injury.

Ursa Cuk has been added to the roster as a replacement.

Ristic has suffered a problem with her right knee, on which she had an operation last year.

"After this week's preparations for the second cycle of qualifications, Katarina Ristic has confirmed that due to swelling in her knee, which she had an operation on last year, she cannot continue with the team," said coach Boris Zrinski.

"The team has called up Ursa Cuk. She will initially take her place in training and try to catch up with the other girls."

Slovenia, who sit second in Group A with a 2-1 record, face group leaders Sweden at home on Sunday.
