Olympic Games Rumors
Ben Bolch: The doctor I spoke with earlier this month said PRP-type therapy plus rest should make Blake Griffin as good as new. Blake Griffin didn’t opt for this procedure when initially hurt because it would have ended his season. Olympics are out for Blake Griffin because he’ll be unable to engage in basketball activities for several months.
Peter Edmiston: Marc Gasol said he hasn’t yet discussed even trying to play in the Olympics, but that they would take a look at his ankle before deciding (and yeah, i don’t know why he said ankle, but he very clearly said ankle).
Following the decision of the FIBA Europe Board taken during its last meeting in Paris, the FIBA Executive Committee met on 23 April at the House of Basketball. After receiving a report by FIBA Europe on the latest developments in European club competitions, the FIBA Executive Committee decided to fully support FIBA Europe’s decision. The Executive Committee requested FIBA Europe to meet this week with all concerned European National Federations in order to review and discuss their domestic initiatives. The implementation of the decisions at European and World level would follow this consultation process. FIBA’s Executive Committee will invite Euroleague Commercial Assets to meet at the House of Basketball in the next days.
