Raul Lopez sidelined for 3 weeks
Real Madrid announced on Thursday that point guard Raul Lopez(1.82-PG) would be sidelined for the next three weeks after aggravating a leg injury in Wednesday’s home win over Regal FC Barcelona to open the Top 16. Lopez suffered a small hamstring muscle tear in his right leg, which the team’s medical staff hopes will heal in time for the second half of the Top 16.
Lopez has been a valuable member of Madrid’s backcourt rotation, averaging 5.9 points and 2.8 assists in just over 20 minutes per game. This is his fifth season with Madrid, during which he has helped the club win the ULEB Cup and one Spanish League championship.
