Unicaja played a perfect match this Sunday at the WiZink Center, which allowed them to defeat Real Madrid and rise to second place in the Endesa League standings. The only spot on an unforgettable Sunday morning was the Kendrick Perry injury. The Florida point guard gave the scare in the final stretch of the third quarter. With the score 72-66, he dropped to the ground while going down to defend, put his hand on his left knee and activated all the alarms.
The game director with a Montenegrin passport was treated by the cajista physiotherapist, Mario Bárbara, and also received the support of Real Madrid’s own doctor. Although he did not play again, The first scans are optimistic, waiting for this Monday’s tests to reveal the real extent of his illness.
This Wednesday we must remember that Unicaja travels to France to play the fourth day of the European league against Le Mans. In that match, Ibon Navarro has to discard one of his 8 North American players, due to quota issues. Regardless of what the doctors say this Monday, It seems clear that Perry will not play against Le Mans. Next weekend, Unicaja will visit Surne Bilbao Basket on matchday 11 of the Regular Phase of the Endesa League.
