Rudy Fernandez has returned to practices with the team and, according to Carlos Sanchez Blas, he has also been cleared to play against Anadolu Efes tomorrow (March 30).

The 35-year-old Spanish veteran got sidelined in mid-February due to a back injury. He missed seven EuroLeague games since.

Coach Pablo Laso confirmed that Fernandez has started training but didn’t get ahead of himself when it comes to actually putting him on the court.

“The boys are fine, winning gives you confidence. We are going to have to play a great game to win. Rudy is the first day he has trained, we will see how he is tomorrow. The rest have trained well, there are some blows but they are normal situations at this point in the season. I have seen them well, knowing that we have three games this week,” Laso said.
