Ronny Turiaf Broke His Hand

by August 18, 2011

Bad news for Ronny Turiaf, fans of the French national hoops team, and the New York Knicks. Reports FIBA: “France centre Ronny Turiaf will miss the remainder of the Olympic Test Event and is a major doubt for the EuroBasket after it was revealed on Wednesday that he broke his hand in Tuesday night’s win over hosts Great Britain. Turiaf got tangled up in a battle for a rebound and, after x-rays were taken at a London hospital, France’s medical staff confirmed the player had sustained a fracture in the fourth metacarpal of his left hand. The 28-year-old will see a specialist in Paris on Thursday to determine how long the injury will keep him on the sidelines. Turiaf could be forced to sit out EuroBasket in Lithuania where France will look to qualify for next year’s Olympic Games.”
