Left injured in a finger during the match against Boulogne-Levallois this Friday, Paul Lacombe (1.95 m, 31 years old) could miss the resumption of the championship with ASVEL. Suspected of having fractured his finger 6 minutes after entering the game, Le Progrès reports that the French rear could be on the sidelines for 2 months, if the examinations confirm this diagnosis. Also on the bench for the entire second half, Antoine Diot was the victim of cramps according to his coach TJ Parker, indicates the Lyon daily.
This injury sounds like a real blow for Paul Lacombe, a few months after being decisive with ASVEL in Final 4. Little responsibility during the regular season, he had taken advantage of the 20 minutes on average which were granted to him in the playoffs, and was worth 13.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 2 steals for 19.7 evaluation at the end of the season. Now, TJ Parker wants to be cautious, aligning a group of 7 players aged 20 or less during the last meeting of the Ain Star Game, against Elan Chalon.
