Shortly before the commencement of the season, Crvena Zvezda Meridianbet Belgrade encountered an unfortunate setback.
Nemanja Bjelica, their recent acquisition, sustained another calf injury, which will prevent him from participating in the initial games.
This development was first disclosed by Telesport and subsequently verified by Telegraph.
The 35-year-old forward underwent an MRI scan following the official EuroLeague media day photoshoot on Tuesday.
Bjelica’s last competitive appearance was with Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul, but he spent a significant portion of the prior season on the sidelines due to a calf injury.
