Virtus Segafredo Bologna overcame Dolomiti Energia Trento in the Italian Lega Basket (LBA) on Sunday. However, the team missed three key players - Tornike Shengelia, Semi Ojeleye, and Iffe Lundberg - with Milos Teodosic not registered for the squad as well.

According to Il Resto del Carlino, both Ojeleye and Shengelia are doubtful for the next EuroLeague's match against Panathinaikos Athens on Wednesday. Head coach Sergio  Scariolo also indicated on Sunday that it's unlikely to see the two forwards play during the next game.

It is noted, though, that Ojeleye has a bigger chance of recovering in time from the muscle contusion he suffered in the last EuroLeague match versus Valencia Basket than Shengelia.
