Barça’s basketball team are off to China for a week, where they will visit Hangzhou and Taipei for a couple of friendlies after getting off to a winning start in the Liga Endesa at the Palau against Laboral Kutxa (87-65).

Tomas Satoransky is missing the trip after his heart rate was detected as abnormal and he was told he needs to rest. Marcus Eriksson also stays at home after getting injured towards the end of the game with Laboral Kutxa.

Xavi Pascual and his men are arriving at Hangzhou Airport on Monday morning, where they’ll give a press conference this evening. On Tuesday they have a training session and a match against local team Zhejiang Lions at 7.35 PM local time. The next day they’ll be giving a lecture at the University of Zhejiang, before heading off to Taipei.

Once there, they will train each day as normal until Saturday, when at 4.45 PM local time they have a friendly against the Taiwan All Stars, after which they’ll return to Barcelona, where they are due to land on Sunday morning.
