Mike James will not play against ALBA Berlin on Wednesday, while his presence in CSKA Moscow is in jeopardy.
CSKA announced that James missing the game against the Germans was a club decision and it remains to be seen whether they will part ways with the American guard.
James wanted to travel to the United States to attend his grandfather’s funeral, who passed away a few days ago. However, the team didn’t let him and that may lead to the two sides terminating their contract.
Mike James is averaging 19.9 points, 5.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds in the EuroLeague this season.
For his part, Armani Milano guard Malcolm Delaney took to Twitter and expressed his support for James.
