Unicaja's Fernandez out 8 weeks
Unicaja Malaga's road to another 7DAYS EuroCup Finals got a lot tougher on Friday when point guard Jaime Fernandez was declared out of action for eight weeks with a leg injury. Fernandez suffered a torn right thigh late in the team's Spanish Cup quarterfinals loss on Thursday. Through 15 EuroCup games this season, Fernandez was second on Unicaja in scoring, with 12 points per game, and first in assists, with 4.6 on average. Fernandez had been indispensable during the absence of another injured point guard, former EuroCup champion Alberto Diaz, who has yet to return from a nearly identical injury in mid-October. Unicaja opens its quarterfinal series against ALBA Berlin on Tuesday, March 5 in the German capital.
