Great blow for Greece NT as their starting C Ioannis Bouroussis got injured and will miss at least 10-15 days of training.

The player suffered a fissure in the metacarpus during a training in Athens and although everyone feared that the player could even miss the World Championship the player himself ruled out such a case and will do his best to be ready on time.

For the moment being Bouroussis will miss the Acropolis Cup (games vs Serbia, Slovenia, Canada) and the great friendly game against USA.

Bouroussis is the second big man to get injured after Schortsianitis, something which might even secure a position in the 12-men squad for Panathinaikos’ Ian Vouyoukas.
