Turkey is of course amped up, being the host nation for the tournament, and they are looking very strong in their early friendlies. They beat New Zealand and Iran by wide margins (87-65 & 93-53). They play Serbia today, which should be a good game, but Serbia is not looking as strong against those same teams (winning by 76-71 & 96-68).
Team Turkey is in the group of death at the Worlds, along with Greece, Puerto Rico, Russia, China, and Ivory Coast. It will be a tough fight for the top three spots in that group, with the winner of Russia-China likely taking the fourth advancement spot.
