The Houston Rockets big man Usman Garuba joined the preparation of the Spanish national team, but the injury he suffered in the NBA Summer League makes his participation in the upcoming EuroBasket doubtful.

The 20-year-old Garuba joined the Spanish national team training camp on Sunday as the Spanish federation informed via video, but the issue is now Garuba's sprain that he suffered in the Summer League in mid-July.

The Spanish national basketball team continues its preparation in Madrid. In the upcoming week, Spain will play two friendlies against Greece, starting with the match at OAKA on Tuesday.

Garuba will be included in the team program from the start but the Spanish federation is cautious about the injury. If Spanish NT's head coach Sergio Scariolo will be able to count on him at the EuroBasket 2022, where they will compete in the A group in Tbilisi, remains to be unknown.


Full Spanish NT squad:

  • Alberto Abalde
  • Hector Alderete 
  • Jonathan Barreiro
  • Dario Brizuela
