|Marija Rezan, Ana Lelas and Antonija Sandric were forced to support their team from the sidelines during EuroBasket Women 2015|
Meanwhile Turic has been handed another significant boost with news that Shavonte Zellous is finally ready to pull on the vest for her adopted country.
The shooting guard was pencilled in to play earlier this summer, but the necessary paperwork was not completed in time for her to occupy the naturalised position at EuroBasket Women 2015.
Turic and his side will also face France in the fight to make it to Czech Republic for the Final Round 2017.
Croatia‘s 14-player roster:
Ana-Marija Begic, Iva Borovic, Iva Ciglar, Ruzica Dzankic, Luca Ivankovic, Ana Lelas, Mirna Mazic, Lana Packovski, Nina Premasunac, Marija Rezan, Antonija Sandric, Ivana Tikvic, Shavonte Zellous.
