The Italian star Gallinari will miss the European Championship, the Spaniards called for a replacement for Llull

One of Italy’s biggest stars was injured in the World Cup qualifying match against Sackartwell. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the striker tripped and grabbed his left knee.

Tests showed that the basketball player had torn the meniscus.

Before the injury, D. Gallinari managed to score 17 points, and the Italian national team beat Sacartvela 91:84.

The 34-year-old athlete was the only NBA basketball player in the Italian lineup – the veteran, who signed a contract with the Boston Celtics in the summer, represented the Atlanta Hawks last year and averaged 11.7 points per game.

At that time, the Spanish national team found a replacement for Sergio Llull, who was injured and will not play in the championship. Coach Sergio Scariolo brought back Alberto Diaz to the team.

The Spaniards will compete in Group A with Belgium, Sarkartvel, Bulgaria, Montenegro and Turkey. The Italians will face Greece, Croatia, Ukraine, Great Britain and Estonia in Group C.
