Davis Bertans - Partizan mts BelgradePartizan mt:s Belgrade paid a high price for its victory over Crvena Zvezda Telekom in Game 4 of the Serbian League finals. Promising forward Davis Bertans suffered a knee injury, and after further evaluation, the club announced Friday that Bertans tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He is expected to undergo surgery in the coming days.

"It is a difficult situation", said Partizan head coach Dusko Vujosevic. "Davis took it pretty hard, but I am sure he will come out of this even stronger. Our club is behind him."

The estimated recovery time from such an injury is at least six months, which means that Bertans could miss the entire 2013-14 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Regular Season. Bertans (2.05 meters, 20 years old) just completed his second season with Partizan. He averaged 6.6 points on 47.1% three-point shooting in 10 Euroleague games last season, including a season-high 17 points on 5-of-8 three-point shooting against FC Barcelona Regal. His numbers jumped to 9.8 points on 44.6% three-point shooting in 28 Adriatic League games.
