The German basketball players continue to worry about the use of Franz Wagner in the further course of the European Championship.

The German basketball players continue to worry about the use of Franz Wagner later in the European Championship.

The 21-year-old NBA professional twisted his ankle at 85:79 in the round of 16 against Montenegro and was able to leave the arena in Berlin just left limping. It is still unclear how badly Wagner, who has been so strong at the European Championships, has been injured.

"Following detailed imaging diagnostics at the Berlin Accident Hospital late yesterday evening, Franz Wagner is still being treated by the medical staff of the DBB. The further course remains to be seen,” said the German Basketball Federation on Sunday.

This means that Wagner's participation in the quarter-finals on Tuesday (8.30 p.m. / Magentasport) is still questionable. A failure of the pro from the Orlando Magic would hit the German team hard, as Wagner has been one of the top performers in the team of national coach Gordon Herbert. Even before the tournament, Moritz Wagner had to cancel for the European Championship. Important players like Maximilian Kleber, Isaac Bonga, Tibor Pleiß and Isaiah Hartenstein are also missing for a variety of reasons. Versus Montenegro Nick Weiler-Babb also had to sit out due to a shoulder injury.
