Bad luck continues for professional Spanish basketball players. First the ACL injury of Alba Torrens, next the ACL injury of Ricky Rubio and now Rudy Fernandez back surgery is shaping up to be difficult for the Men’s National Team to compete well in the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Fernandez, 26, has missed 12 games this season due to a lower back strain, and the injury recently flared up against Dallas on March 19, prompting further evaluation and more diagnostic testing. A date for the surgery has yet to be scheduled.
