Injured Polonara is unlikely to play this season 0

Zalgiris Kaunas started the Betsafe-LKL semi-final series with the win, but lost Achille Polonara to injury in the first game of the best-of-five series.

The forward felt pain in his thigh in the second quarter of the game against 7bet-Lietkabelis Panevezys and was unable to continue the game.

After tests, it was revealed that Polonara had a partially torn thigh muscle, which will take few weeks to heal. This means that he is unlikely to play again this season.

Polonara, who arrived in Kaunas at the beginning of January, was scoring 6.7 points and grabbing 6.2 rebounds per game in the Betsafe-LKL Championship.
