Barcelona center Lawal out 3 months with torn meniscus
FC Barcelona Lassa center Shane Lawal underwent knee surgery Wednesday, which could keep him on the sidelines for the rest of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague season. Dr. Joan Carles Monllau performed the arthroscopic procedure on Lawal’s left knee at University Hospital Quiron Dexeus and estimated a three-month recovery period for the player. Lawal first ruptured his meniscus in Barcelona’s Top 16 Round 7 victory over Zalgiris Kaunas. The 29-year-old came off the bench in 16 Turkish Airlines Euroleague games for the club this season to average 5.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 0.8 blocks.
