Zenit loses Ponitka for double-round
Zenit St Petersburg announced the forward Mateusz Ponitka will miss the double-round week, at least, with a muscle injury. Ponitka is Zenit's second-best producer, averaging a performance index rating of 13.6 through eight games based on 10.1 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. His injury comes at an inopportune moment as Zenit hits the road for games on Tuesday at Valencia Basket and Friday at KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz. It is unclear if Ponitka will return for Round 11, when Zenit hosts Real Madrid in St Petersburg for the first time ever.
