ALBA Berlin suffered a new injury problem with the news on Monday that forward Tim Schneider
will be out indefinitely with a herniated spinal disc.

He had played parts of three seasons for ALBA in the 7DAYS EuroCup, helping the team reach last spring's final series and finish as runner-up. Schneider underwent surgery in Berlin on Monday, the club announced, giving no estimation of his return date.
