Wagner failed in Australia

National basketball player Franz Wagner has been ruled out of the second World Cup group game against Australia with an ankle injury. This was reported by the German Basketball Federation (DBB) shortly before the start of Sunday’s game in Okinawa (10.30 am/Free on MagentaSport). As national coach Gordon Herbert told MagentaSport, Wagner’s Isaac Bonga from Bayern Munich is in the starting five.

“He didn’t put any pressure on his ankle. We have to see how tomorrow will be,” Herbert told Magentasport of his shooting star: “Injuries are difficult, but they give other opportunities. Without Franz, Dennis (Schröder/D. Red. ) more minutes. “

Bild newspaper and podcast Got Next previously reported on the NBA pro’s failure after meeting him on a hike on a Japanese island. “None of this would happen today,” said Wagner, who celebrates his 22nd birthday on Sunday. The shooting star’s left foot was wrapped in a shoe.

Wagner turned his ankle in the final quarter of Germany’s opening game against hosts Japan (81:63). On Saturday, team doctor Oliver Butts could only say there was no risk of missing the World Cup.
