After a defeat at Kaunas to Zalgiris, Real Madrid will host Asvel in Round 15 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, and the good news is that Rudy Fernandez and Gabriel Deck are working with the team again.

As coach Chus Mateo said before the clash with the French champions, the duo have trained without issues and will be in contention for the upcoming match.

We will have 14 players and have to make two discards before the game. Rudy and Gaby Deck have trained normally,” Mateo said.

Rudy Fernandez got injured in the Spanish Super Cup final and underwent surgery in September to solve a wrist problem. He hasn’t played since then, but that could change this week.

As for Gabriel Deck, he missed Real Madrid‘s EuroLeague double week to a muscle overload.

Mateo also confirmed that some players have specific health issues, but only Carlos Alocen, Anthony Randolph, and Adam Hanga are out for sure.
Tavares has been without training for two days due to a high fever, just like Abalde and Hezonja. Fabien is sick today. Tomorrow we will see how they get up and who is available. Besides Alocén and Randolph, long-term, the only one who remains out is Hanga,” Chus Mateo concluded.
