Russia’s CSKA Moscow have revealed that their playmaker Leo Westermann is set to miss the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four.
The 25-year-old will miss the final four due to a back injury as he is expected to undergo surgery on Wednesday, the day that his team arrives to the Final Four, to fix one of his intervertebral discs.
According to the club, Westermann will be sidelined indefinitely, depending on the results of the surgery and the period of post-operative rehabilitation.
Westermann averaged 4.6 points on 100% free throw shooting and 1.9 assists in 17 EuroLeague games this season.
The 25-year-old point guard is already in his sixth EuroLeague season and played previously for Partizan mts Belgrade, Limoges CSP of his native France, and Zalgiris Kaunas prior to signing for CSKA.
