If the physical problems of David Kravish and Yankuba Sima are never good news, even less so when the Unicaja face 3 games in 8 days. And since this Tuesday, Ibon Navarro is preparing the first marathon in sight that the Los Guindos team has in the Endesa League, The Basketball Champions League has not yet started, which will start on October 18.
The first of the meetings will arrive this Saturday -8:45 p.m.-. The cajista team will debut in ACB with the warmth of Martín Carpena to receive Lenovo Tenerife from Txus Vidorreta. An inaugural duel between the two teams that fought last year for fourth place in the regular season and that only decided the basket average after both tied with 24 wins and 10 losses.
After this start in style, it will be the turn of travel to the Casademont Zaragoza court to play on Wednesday the 27th -8:00 p.m.-. A match against Porfi Fisac’s renewed team that will no longer be able to count on the world runner-up Stefan Jovic, who has gone to what will be the third cajista rival: Valencia Basket. The first of the Euroleague teams will land at Carpena on Saturday the 30th, starting at 8:45 p.m.
In short, three very high intensity matches – with very powerful interior players – that will test Unicaja 23/24 from the first day. From there they will also arrive Dreamland Gran Canaria, Joventut or Baskonia. However, these three games come at a difficult time in which the coaching staff has all its focus on recovering Kravish and Sima as soon as possible.
