Fenerbahce Beko announced on Wednesday morning that Joffrey Lauvergne is out for the EuroLeague Regular Season Round 24 match against Anadolu Efes. The 27-year-old French forward/center hasn’t yet recovered from his ankle injury, which prevented him from playing against Darussafaka Tekfen last week. Tyler Ennis will also remain out, but the rest of the players will be available.

Lauvergne didn’t miss any EuroLeague action this season up to his ankle injury. In Fenerbahce’s 22 first contests, he averaged 17:58 minutes on the court with 8.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists per match. It’s also worth noting that the Turkish club has already sealed its playoffs ticket and is now trying to secure the home-court advantage.
