Juan Carlos Navarro will not feature against Russia’s Khimki on Thursday. The Blaugrana captain is recovering from an ankle injury (synovitis) which will keep out of FC Barcelona Regal’s second Top-16 match. His recovery will mark his availability ahead of this weekend’s ACB match, against Lagun Aro.
It’s worth noting that Navarro put in his best Liga ACB performance this Sunday, against Real Madrid. He scored 33 points and finished the match with an overall evaluation of 44.
