Sonny Weems will not be able to help Zalgiris in the final stage of the season, as the American swingman’s ankle sprain turned out to be more severe than previously thought. After a further examination once the swelling died down, it became clear that the season is over for Weems.
“Weems’ ankle ligaments were damaged more severely, than we expected. Injuries like this usually take 6-8 weeks to heal and require at least an extra week of rehab afterwards,” said Robertas Narkus, the doctor of Zalgiris.
The American was averaging 9.9 points and 3.8 rebounds in the Lithuanian League (LKL), while his statistics in Euroleague were much more impressive – 15.5 points, 5 rebounds and 1.3 assist per game.
