The third friendly game Budućnost played during the pre-season, this time against the national team of Montenegro, ended with an ugly injury of Vladimir Dragićević who will be sidelined for a few months reports the official Adriatic League website.
Dragičević, one of the important players in the line-up of the Montenegrian champion, broke his hand during one of the duels on the court and immediately underwent surgery.
»That was a huge blow for us and I am still not sure whether we will need to look for another substitutional player for the beginning of the player,« said the general manager of the team Gavrilo Pajović. Dragicevic is the main substitution in the power forward position. Last season he averaged 4.5 points and 2.6 rebounds in 28 games.
