Zalgiris Kaunas is going through an unpleasant season opener. The Lithuanian champion, who started the season in the Euroleague with two losses and has already managed to fire her Austrian coach Martin Schiller, will have to make do in the near future without center Joffrey Lubren. The Frenchman, who recently turned 30, injured his shoulder and will not be available to his team for at least a month. According to reports in Europe, the Lithuanians will be looking for a replacement for the French center for the period during which he will be absent from the team games.
Zalgiris started the season in the Euroleague in a bad way, presenting bad basketball, not to mention the enthusiastic team we have seen from it in recent years. In the opening round, the Lithuanians lost 88:76 to French Villarban, after already trailing by 20 points, while in the previous round they lost 70:64 at home to Zenit St. Petersburg.
