VIncent Poirier is ready to make his debut for Real Madrid. Everything indicates that he will do it this Sunday in the Endesa League game against Joventut. The 27-year-old and 2.13-meter center has been able to exercise some days with his teammates and, although he is somewhat lacking in rhythm, he could have his first minutes as a Madrid player in the clash against Penya.
“Monday arrived and until Thursday we have done a work of adaptation and rehabilitation. We have put him to train and move so that he knows everything. As of Thursday he has been entering the dynamics of the team and has trained well. Obviously I believe that he lacks rhythm, normal. He has been without playing for a long time, he has been standing still, he has had the coronavirus … which is a normal situation, but he is quite well. He has trained with the team and is ready to debut ” , explained Pablo Laso in the analysis prior to the game against Joventut.
The Madrid coach confirmed that the only missing player is Anthony Randolph, who is recovering from a torn Achilles tendon. The rest, including Trey Thompkins, is available. “We have to get him into the rhythm of the game,” said Laso, who does not forget that the Euroleague playoffs begin next week against Anadolu Efes, that Poirier cannot play the continental competition and that Thompkins is fundamental: “The last month he has been very limp in the knee and he has made an effort to be able to play, but I think we needed to stop him so that he could recover. He has trained quite well and in principle he is one of those players fixed for tomorrow if we want to have you ready for next week. “
The whites have the leadership of the Endesa League on track. They have only lost one of the 30 games they have played and the recent triumph at the Palau opened a gap with Barcelona, ??their closest pursuer, although they are three more victories than the average. “I do not know if the word is superiority, but it is true that in the Endesa League we are doing very well in terms of results. There are better days and worse days, but the feeling of solidity from the beginning has been very good and wearing this The number of victories speaks highly of the boys and the work during the season. “
