Unicaja loses Toupane for rest of EuroCup season
Unicaja Malaga small forward Axel Toupane is expected to miss the remainder of the 7DAYS EuroCup season due to an Achilles tendon injury in his left leg. Toupane was hurt early in Sunday's Copa del Rey Championship Game against Real Madrid and left Palacio de Deportes Jose Maria Martin Carpena on crutches after his team's loss. He underwent testing at QuironSalud Hospital in Malaga on Monday morning which confirmed a partial tear in his Achilles tendon. As such, Toupane will be sidelined for at least three months and unable to help Unicaja in the EuroCup Playoffs. There is hope that he will return in time for the Spanish League playoffs. Toupane averaged 9.6 points on 39.5% three-point shooting and 90.9% free throws in 13 EuroCup games with Unicaja this season.
