Tornike Shengelia to miss start of the season

Euroleague Basketball

Laboral Kutxa Vitoria Gasteiz is set to start the season without starting power forward Tornike Shengelia, who will be sidelined for six weeks due to a knee problem, the club announced Wednesday.

Shengelia (2.06 meters, 24 years old) has a cyst in his left meniscus. As such, Shengelia will miss the first half of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague regular season. He will follow a conservative treatment supervised by Laboral’s medical team.

Shengelia is in his second season with Laboral. He averaged 9.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 24 Euroleague games last season.
