Laso: "The thing about Abalde's knee is just a blow"

Madrid defends leadership this Sunday in Bilbao, after falling on Friday in Milan, in a Euroleague where it does not raise its head. Abalde does not have a serious injury.


Pablo Laso analyzed in the club's media the game against Bilbao Basket, corresponding to the sixth day of the Endesa League, which will be played this Sunday (20:00, Movistar Deportes): “Friday's game in Milan was very hard and We know that tomorrow we will face Bilbao Basket, a team that plays basketball very well and works very well in matches. For us it is very important to be very well prepared for this match because, furthermore, we lost there last year. "

The Vitorian coach reported the injury suffered by Alberto Abalde on the Armani court. The forward retired with a sore knee: "We are waiting for the tests, but we are calm because it is a blow. In theory, there is nothing wrong with the stability of the knee, but we will wait for the tests. From yesterday Today he has improved a lot, although we are going to wait a few days for him to be with us again. Randolph is coming in little by little and we are going to see these days why they are the contact point to see if he improved ".

Regarding the rival, Retabet Bilbao, Laso says that "Balvin is the clear reference in the interior game, a very decisive player, who helps defensively and with balls on the inside. Of the rest of the team he assures: “Rousselle generates a lot of game and has the ability to score. Jaylon Brown is looking for life with shots and penetrations. And they have the outside danger of Kulboka. It is a very complete team and one that we respect from the first moment ".

Madrid are undefeated leaders in the ACB and, however, in the Euroleague they do not raise their head with three defeats in four days. "We are happy to be leaders, although now in October the results are an anecdote. Being a leader gives you confidence and speaks that the job is well done. We must keep working and keep growing as a team."
