Devance status uncertain for Governors’ Cup because of knee injury
Apart from missing Marc Pingris who is out three weeks because of a fractured finger, the B-MEG Llamados could potentially be without the services of another key big man, Joe Devance, for a long stretch of time.
B-MEG coach Tim Cone told InterAKTV that Devance is suffering from bone spurs in his knee, a condition that makes it hard for him to bend and extend his leg. One option to alleviate the pain, according to Cone, is for Devance to go under the knife.
“We’ll know on Monday if he’ll get surgery,” said Cone, who added that the procedure would cause the versatile forward to miss the whole conference.
“They’re gonna have to shave off the bone on his knee, because it’s hitting up against ligaments and it’s gonna be very painful.”
