Kyrylo Fesenko

The captain of the national team of Ukraine Kirill Fesenko to training camp in Slovenia received a knee injury.

At the national team center Kirill Fesenko discovered cartilage damage of the knee joint.

The operation will take place next Tuesday, and the recovery will take about a month, and that means the player will miss Eurobasket, which will take place from 31 August to 17 September.

“After the training camp in Slovenia Cyril felt discomfort in his left knee. We realized that it was the same knee that Fesenko had problems last season. Speaking in Italy, he was treated for a sprain of the lateral ligaments.

It turned out that was another problem. Apparently, there was a powerful strike, which led not only to tension but also to cartilage damage.

After the consultation with an expert Cyril decided to have the operation. I hope for his speedy recovery. But even the most optimistic projections, it will not be able to recover for the start of the European championship,” said team doctor of Ukraine Sergey Kalinkin.

Recall that Eurobasket 2017 will miss the playmaker of the national team of Ukraine Pooh Jeter.
