HTo date, Unicaja had successfully overcome the sixth wave of coronavirus that is devastating professional sports practically everywhere on the planet and also society in general. The Los Guindos team has reported several positive cases in its squad this morning. Jaime Fernández already missed the duel against Valencia Basket on Sunday and although Unicaja did not make it official, COVID was the reason for his absence and also that of a member of the Fotis Katsikaris coaching staff. The typesetter’s defeat made the subject forget, but unfortunately the contagion situation has grown in the following hours.

That is why the ACB has communicated this morning that the Surne Bilbao-Unicaja matches, postponed from matchday 15 and scheduled for this Wednesday, and Urbas Fuenlabrada-Unicaja, from matchday 18 and scheduled for this Saturday, have been postponed due to cases positive for COVID-19 that affect the staff of the Malaga team. In the tests carried out this Monday, several positive cases appeared that join the one that was already detected last Saturday, so it will be impossible to hold this week’s matches, as planned.

Unicaja has made it official that “all those affected are currently asymptomatic and isolated at home following the protocols of the club and the competition,” it explains in the text where the situation has been made official. The Surne Bilbao-Unicaja match, from matchday 15, will be played on Sunday, January 30, at 12:30 p.m., replacing the Unicaja-Surne Bilbao, from matchday 20, which was scheduled for the same day and time.
