Eurobasket Rumors

Abrines hyperextended his right knee playing for his native Spain in FIBA EuroBasket. And though he was held him out of the rest of the tournament – at least in part at the request of the Thunder, according to an earlier report from Spanish website MARCA – Abrines said the injury’s effects didn’t linger long. “I didn’t feel pain at all after the first day,” he said Wednesday during a Thunder Cares visit to the Oklahoma City Zoo. “But the MRI said I had a bone bruise, so that’s what keeps me (off) of the court.”

That new weight might “drop down a little bit,” he said, as he focuses less on strength and more on other parts of his game in preparation for the season. And he’s anxious to be back on the court focusing less on that preparation and more on his game. “For me, I could do everything, because I don’t feel any pain,” Abrines said. “It just depends on the doctors right now.”
For the Miami Heat guard, this is truly the biggest achievement in his career so far. “Definitely it is,” Goran Dragic said to Greek National Television. “I’m still waiting for that NBA ring but this (EuroBasket gold) is something else. This is for my country. My country gave me everything. I was born and raised there. I’m glad I can give something back to the Slovenian people. You see how the gym was full of them. I want to thank them from my heart.”
