Barcelona center Jawai sidelined with ankle sprain
Nathan Jawai - FC Barcelona Regal - EB12FC Barcelona Regal will be without its biggest player for the start of the Top 16 after center Nate Jawai suffered an ankle injury during a Spanish League game on Sunday. The team’s medical staff diagnosed Jawai with a second degree sprain to his right ankle, with an estimated recovery time of two weeks. That will likely keep Jawai out of Barcelona’s Top 16 opener next Friday against Fenerbahce Ulker. Jawai, in his third Euroleague season, but first with Barcelona, averaged 8 points on 66% shooting plus 4.5 rebounds over 18 minutes in a reserve role during the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Regular Season.
