The guard of the Turkish national basketball team, Furkan Korkmaz, is questionable for today’s match against Bulgaria in Group “A” of EuroBasket 2022. The shooter suffered a back spasm, which is the reason why he did not appear at yesterday’s training of our southern neighbors . According to the selector Ergin Ataman, the problems arose because of the long journey of the Turkish team in the bus from the hotel to the hall.

“There is a back spasm. They appeared the other day at lunch. It takes 45-50 minutes from the hotel to the hall, and in the morning in the traffic we travel for about an hour. I found out that it took 5-10 minutes from the nearby hotels… The doctors in our the hotel told him that the spasms appeared from the long standing on the bus. Tomorrow morning we will find out what his condition is,” said Ataman.
