Sergio Scariolo will not be able to count on Carlos Alocen in the United States-Spain this coming Monday (early morning, Spanish time) in Las Vegas. The young Aragonese base has learned before the Spanish expedition left that in the previous hours he had been in close contact with a positive for COVID.

For this reason, the medical team of the Selection has decided that Alocén will not rejoin the group, as a health precaution measure.

In this way, the Spanish expedition to Las Vegas will be formed by the remaining 14 players summoned, who have been added Juancho Hernangómez, who in the coming days will undergo various tests and evaluations by the Minnesota Timberwolves medical staff.

For Sergio Scariolo “Carlos has taken a step forward in his growth this month. We reinforce the conviction that he will be a very important player for the future of the National Team.” He also added that “We are happy with this training period and we are sure that, after another year of experience with his club, he will be able to return with more strength and possibilities next summer.”
