Fenerbahce Beko forward/center Jan Vesely, forward Gigi Datome and guard Erick Green will likely be out of the upcoming Turkish BSL League Finals against EuroLeague finalist Anadolu Efes.

While all three players have begun practicing on their own, they have yet to recover from their respective injuries, per Fenerbahce Team manager Cenk Renda.

Gigi Datome, Jan Vesely and Erick Green have started individual training. However, their recovery process continues. I’m sorry to say that right now, they don’t seem like they’ll be playing,” Renda said. The best-of-seven Finals begin Sunday (9/6).

Datome, who was also out in the EuroLeague Final Four, is rehabilitating from a calf injury. Vesely is facing problems with his knee while Green is recovering from an ankle injury he sustained in the EuroLeague third-place loss to Real Madrid.

Fenerbahce is also missing forward/center Joffrey Lauvergne (ankle) and guard Tyler Ennis (broken tibia). They have both been ruled out for the season.
