The Spaniards were already guaranteed first place in Group A of the competition and opted not to risk Gasol, who sustained a minor ankle sprain during Sunday’s victory over the tournament hosts. ‘He is day to day,’ said Spain coach Sergio Scariolo. ‘He’s having treatment and the doctors will assess him before the second round begins.'”
