Stick for the Estu: Jackson, down for the remainder of the season

The French guard (1.90 meters and 31 years old) has relapsed from his right wrist injury and will have to undergo surgery again.


Edwin Jackson (1.90 meters and 31 years) will not play again for the remainder of the season. The guard has suffered a relapse of his right wrist injury (rupture of the scapholunate ligament) that kept him off the court for five months and will have to undergo surgery again.

The Frenchman, with a contract until 2022 with the schoolboys, was injured for the first time against UCAM Murcia on September 24 on the second day of the Endesa League and fell back against the university students on Sunday, March 4. During the warm-up prior to the match, he was already showing symptoms of pain in the affected hand.

His wrist problem has weighed him down in the nine games he has played since his return against Unicaja on February 27. Self-conscious in attack, he did not dare to launch with ease from the perimeter or from medium distance. On shots near the rim, he was not comfortable either.Alessandro Gentile

This has caused his averages to plummet in his 11 games this season: 6.5 points with 26.9% from the triple and 2.6 rebounds for a 3.9 PIR. His loss joins that of Dovydas Giedraitis (shoulder) and the eternal doubt of Alessandro Gentile. Barea finished played against UCAM.

Gentile's case is the most abnormal. The Italian has missed the last two ACB games due to a grade one muscle injury to the adductor longus of the lower left limb after spending January and most of February in dry dock due to COVID.

“It's anyone's guess: both he and the club do everything we can to get him back, but he has ups and downs. He returns to training, but the next day he is not well. When he is at 100% he will return, he has linked COVID and its consequences with the muscle injury, and is in the process of recovery and struggling to return. We are going to see how the week is to see if he can be in Tenerife ", said Jota Cuspinera, Estu coach, after the defeat against Murcia.
