The competition among the big men will be very serous," the coach spoke. The potential absence of sharpshooter Gladyr, who had a great season in the Basketball Champions League with AS Monacowould be a particularly painful blow.
After ending the season in France, he'll undergo surgery and his will not recover in time to participate in the tournament," Murzin said. That being said, playing without the team's nominal starting backcourt wouldn't be entirely new territory for Ukraine, who already had to do without Gladyr and Jeter in the FIBA EuroBasket Qualifiers.
Knee concerns could keep Sergii Gladyr out of the national team In their absence, coach Murzin delegated the primary ball-handling duties to the versatile 6ft 6in cm point forward Oleksandr Lypovyy, who did a fine job, averaging 6. Enisey Krasnoyarsk guard Denys Lukashov, who led the national team in efficiency last year, could also stand to see a similarly increased role, with Ruslan Otverchenko and Oleksandr Riabchuck soaking up the rest of the minutes.
If coach Murzin decides to set his sights on the stanislav lukashov options, it could lead to the soon-to-be year-old Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk earning a spot in the senior side for the very first time.
