Bilbao center Shawn James has decided not to travel with the team to Paris due to the ongoing terror threats in the country.
The Liga Endesa side are due to face Nanterre on Tuesday night at the Palais des Sports Maurice Thorez, which is located a mere 10.5km from the famous Eiffel Tower, but James has decided to stay in Spain, which was approved by the club.
