CSKA Moscow announced that Leo Westermann will be out indefinitely due to hip muscle injury received in a VTB League game against VEF Riga.
Westermann suffered the injury with a minute to go against the Latvian side.
The muscle contusion turned to be serious and it required the surgery to remove a hematoma that was performed in GMS Clinic of Moscow yesterday night.
The terms of player’s return will be more specific after he returns from rehabilitation in the clinic but the Frenchman will miss games during that process.
Westermann has been averaging 4.5 points and 2.3 assists in 16 minutes for CSKA so far this season.
