Real Madrid is expected to miss star guard Sergio Llull for several games, due to injury.
The head coach of Real Madrid, Pablo Laso, confirmed the news while speaking to reporters prior to the game against Armani Milano on Friday.
“We come into the game following a trip featuring two tough away games, in Tenerife and Andorra, and we’ve got a few absentees, like Llull, Deck and the minor injury picked up by Rudy in the game in Andorra.
He tried to train and we’ll have to see how he’s doing tomorrow, but we’ve got to be careful with it because it’s a muscular issue. Llull will likely remain sidelined and that’s one that’ll need more time. Deck trained with the team today.
We’ll be careful with the three of them right up until the last and we’ll have to see how they’re doing for tomorrow’s game, whilst bearing in mind that the rest of the team is feeling the effect of so many matches and trips,” Laso said, via Eurohoops.net.
Real is currently second in the EuroLeague standings, with a 12-5 record.
