Sergio Llull underwent arthroscopy in his right knee on Thursday at the Sanitas La Moraleja University Hospital. An operation that will take him off the court for several weeks, but that does not take away his smile, as he showed through his personal Twitter account.
“Small step through the workshop to solve some discomfort in the knee and face the end of the season. Hug everyone!” wrote the Menorcan, who already missed several games at the beginning of the year due to discomfort in the same knee.
The current injury occurred last Friday against Valencia Basket on matchday 25 of the Euroleague. He injured his right knee, the operated one, and did not return to the track. Tests he underwent after the match did not show a major knee injury.
On Wednesday he tried to exercise with his teammates, but he ended up with bad feelings and he finally had to undergo surgery.
The loss of Llull is the umpteenth headache for Pablo Laso. The Basque coach has experienced a real escabechina among his players due to injuries.
Anthony Randolph will not return until next season due to a broken Achilles heel in his right foot and Jeff Taylor, who is still in recovery, did not participate in the Copa del Rey, and Laprovittola arrived just after overcoming COVID.
In addition, Rudy Fernández could not play the final against Barça and neither the duel against Zalgiris on the last day of the Euroleague. A sum and it continues desperate.
