Hansen - injury Dynamo Moscow shooting guard Travis Hansen will be sidelined indefinitely after tearing his Achilles' tendon in his left foot. Hansen suffered the injury during the first quarter of a Russian League game against CSKA Moscow on Sunday. He will undergo tests to determine when he will be able to be back on court, but is expected to miss the remainder of the season. Hansen arrived in Moscow last summer from Tau Ceramica and has averaged 14.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 14 Euroleague games this season, ranking second in scoring and assists for Dynamo. The club is already looking for a replacement before the Top 16 starts. "It is a big loss for us. We played excellent basketball in January and managed to win five consecutive games, so now we must carry on playing well without Hansen," head coach Dusan Ivkovic said.
