Real Madrid: Pocius, out 6-8 weeks
Martynas Pocius - Real Madrid - EB12Real Madrid swingman Marty Pocius is set to miss at least six weeks due to a stress fracture in his right ankle, the club announced Wednesday. Pocius had been having ankle problems since mid-January, missing most games since that moment. New tests confirmed that Pocius has a stress facture in the distal epifisis of his right ankle. As such, Pocius will be out for at least six weeks, missing the remainder of the Top 16 and the playoffs. Pocius, however, may return in time to finish the current Turkish Airlines Euroleague season if Real Madrid makes it to the Final Four. Pocius has averaged 3.2 points in 12 Euroleague games until now, stepping on court 10 minutes in average.
