Sergio Llull will not play the Eurobasket with Spain. The Spaniard was injured on Wednesday in the duel against Iceland and will be absent for the tournament that begins next week. This has been confirmed by the Federation (FEB) in a statement in which it specifies that the outsider suffers from a muscular problem that is not serious, but that will prevent him from being with the team in Georgia.

Llull, one of the team’s emotional references, leaves the national team’s dressing room orphaned. A sensitive loss for Scariolo, who only has one discard left before giving his final list for the Eurobasket.

The absence of the madridista complicates the task for the Italian, who is left without a fundamental piece. Not only because of the leadership that his figure represented in the concentration, but because of his ability to act as an escort and base. A position where you are left alone Lorenzo Brown and Juan Nunez.

With Llull ruled out, Scariolo will have to decide on the final discard, which will be announced after Saturday’s game against the Netherlands. It seems that without him, the options of Nunez, Jaime Fernandez and Brizuela grow and the doubt would remain between Parra – who didn’t even get dressed yesterday -, Sebas Saiz and Fran Guerra.
