Real Madrid will travel to Istanbul for the EuroLeague game against Fenerbahce Beko Thursday (20/2) without forward Anthony Randolph, guard Sergio Llull, swingman Jeff Taylor and forward/center and team captain Felipe Reyes.

“We have significant casualties. Randolph is the most serious one. His finger is hurt and we estimate that his injury will keep him out for a month and a half, more or less. Taylor has a knee problem. He wasn’t able to train today but we ruled out that the injury is serious,” Real coach Pablo Laso said.

“Llull has tried to practice but he has overloaded his lower part of his soleus muscle and he won’t travel,” Laso added. “Reyes is overloaded. We have a very demanding weekend and we will travel without those four players. We will travel with the other twelve.”

Real Madrid, that comes off winning the 2020 Spanish Copa del Rey, is 18 – 6 in EuroLeague and tied with fellow Spanish club Barcelona at the second place in the standings. Fenerbahce, the recently crowned back-to-back Cup winner in Turkey is 11- 13 and at the eighth spot, together with Olimpia Milano.
