It seems that Spain will travel to Rio for the Olympic Games without center Marc Gasol. The Memphis Grizzlies star hasn’t managed to recover from the foot injury that has been plaguing him in recent months, according to Vicente Azpirtate, former media officer of the Spanish national team.
However it is curious that Marc Gasol’s name appears in the 12-men squad chosen by head coach Sergio Scariolo, that was announced only a few hours ago. As of now, nothing official has been confirmed by the Spanish Federation regarding Gasol’s status in the team.
Here is the list of the players that compile the Spanish national team’s squad in Rio:
Ricky Rubio, Jose Manuel Calderon, Sergio Rodríguez, Juan Carlos Navarro, Sergio Llull, Rudy Fernández, Fernando San Emeterio, Felipe Reyes, Nikola Mirotic, Víctor Claver, Marc Gasol y Pau Gasol.
Marc Gasol renuncia a los Juegos Olímpicos. Lo ha intentado pero su pie necesita más tiempo de recuperación.
