Sergey Karasev was held out of the Russian National team's game against Italy Wednesday due to what team coach Yevgeny Pashutina called a "little sore leg." Karasev struggled in the Russian's opening game of the Eurobasket qualifying round against Switzerland, scoring three points in seven minutes of action. Russia lost the game to the Swiss 79-77, an upset by all accounts. There was no indication after that game that the 6'7" shooting guard was hurt. He last played in the final game of the Orlando summer league. NetsDaily
