Barcelona’s Petteri Koponen is in a stable condition after being involved in a car accident on Sunday evening.

The Finland international is still being monitored by doctors after being in a craniocerebral trauma but is making rapid improvement and has even spoken to immediate family.

Koponen moved to Barcelona from Khimki in August and under new coach Georgios Bartzokas and team-mate from last season in Moscow Tyrese Rice in the line up, Koponen was expected to be part of the regular rotation in Catalonia.
