National player Andi Obst out for several weeks
FC Bayern's basketball has again been hit with brutal injury news as national player Andreas Obst suffered an elbow injury in training before the departure for the EuroLeague game in Kaunas (Fri., Dec. 23rd, 19:00) and will be absent from the Munich team for several weeks. This was the result of an examination on Thursday morning.
His arm will initially be immobilized and the shooting guard will be checked again in a month. Andi Obst has been one of Bayern's most effective shooters in the premier league so far, averaging 9.4 points.
Just like Captain Lucic
A similar injury, also unfortunately suffered in training, to team captain Vladimir Lucic (8.7 ppg), who is expected to be out until the beginning of the year. In addition, center Augustine Rubit (7.8 ppg) has been absent for the past two weeks due to a groin injury.
In addition, FCBB head coach Andrea Trinchieri may also have to do without two more guards in Lithuania: National player Nick Weiler-Babb (6.6 ppg, 3.7 rpg), Bayern's best defender, and Serb Ognjen Jaramaz, Munich's top scorer in the recent BBL win against Braunschweig (97-78), have been out since the beginning of the week due to a stomach bug. Their use is questionable.
Nine games from now until mid-January
Bayern will play Heidelberg in Mannheim (Dec. 27) and Partizan Belgrade (Dec. 29) before New Year's Eve. In the first half of January, they have six games: in Rostock (Jan. 3), against Panathinaikos Athens (Jan. 5), Alba Berlin (Jan. 8) and Baskonia Vítoria (Jan. 10), at Fenerbahce Istanbul (Jan. 12) and in Ludwigsburg (Jan. 15).
