The Cleveland Cavaliers new pickup, Israeli forward Omri Casspi slipped today (Wednesday) during a national team practice preparing for the upcoming 2011 Eurobasket championship and will undergo physical therapy for the next two weeks and is questionable for the tournament in Lithuania.

'The knee is not something you play around with,' Casspi said, 'I will not play again until I know I'm 100% capable.'

'I'm not sure if I will play in the EuroBasket. It's too early to decide now, but I feel horrible pains and can barley move. I will need around six weeks to recuperate, two of those playing no basketball at all and then the doctors will check my knee again,' Casspi added.

At first, Casspi pulled a muscle and walked off court alone, as he left the gym to get an MRI scan. However, results later showed that Casspi pulled a muscle on the inner side of his fibula and was instructed to stay home and not travel with Israel's NT to Holland for its second exhibition tournament.

The upcoming Eurobasket preparations began terribly for Casspi who missed his first national warm-up tournament in Cyprus due to a virus. Casspi will have to recover quickly as he is expected to be Israel's preliminary defender stopping Germany's Dirk Nowitzki on August 31st, in their opening game of the European championships.

Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo out for Eurobasket with knee injury - 1 day ago
Greece's basketball federation has accused the Milwaukee Bucks and the NBA of hatching a plan to prevent Giannis Antetokounmpo(211-G/F-94, agency: Octagon Europe) from playing in the European championship. About an hour after Antetokounmpo posted on Facebook and Instagram that he was unavailable because of a knee injury, the federation attacked the Bucks and the NBA in a statement, describing an "organized and well-staged plan" to keep Antetokounmpo from playing in the Eurobasket at the e...   [read more]
Will Spain Reign Supreme Again in EuroBasket 2017 - 9 days ago
Spain will once again find themselves as heavy favourites in the upcoming EuroBasket 2017 (31st August - 17th September). It is, of course, no surprise that the Spanish are widely tipped to win again this year, having won three of the last four EuroBasket Gold Medals. In fact, Spain have finished in the medal positions in the last five tournaments and have not finished any lower than 6th overall in the last 40 years. Put simply, the Spanish have been consistently excellent in the competit...   [read more]
