Virtus Bologna star forward Semi Ojeleye will miss four weeks with a thigh injury, according to head coach Sergio Scariolo.
“His injury is a very unfortunate coincidence for the type of player he is, considering that he is one of the pillars on which the team is built,” Scariolo told media on Sunday.
Semi Ojeleye, who is averaging 9.6 points and 3.8 rebounds this season, got injured during Friday’s road game vs Bayern Munich.
Ojeleye has already been ruled out for EuroLeague double-round week, with Virtus Bologna taking on Crvena Zvezda (home, Tuesday) and ASVEL Villeurbanne (road, Friday). Virtus is at 9-12 in the standings, two games shy of the playoff zone.
