During today’s clash between Galatasaray and Lotos Gdynia Turkish team’s wing Alba Torrens injured her knee and was carried of the court on a stretcher.
According to post game comments by Galatasaray’s head coach Ceyhun Yildizoglu it doesn’t look good for Torrens:
It was bad and unlucky match for us, because Alba Torrens sustained a serious knee injury in the third quarter. All indications are that the Spaniard will not appear on the floor this season. Despite the trauma our leading athletes have shown that we are a class team.

Updated: Her agent Marc Ventura told feb.es that they did an X-ray on her knee in Poland and put a cast on it to immobilize it for the travel to Turkey. X-ray determined only damage to her meniscus. On Friday in Istanbul MRI will be performed to find out the extent of damage to the ligaments.
