General Director of “Khimki” Pavel Astakhov told about the state of the basketball player Timofey Mozgov.
— There was information that Timofey Mozgov was ready to go to the floor, but unfortunately…
— Indeed, it is before the suspension of the Championships trained for a week at full strength with the team. If not stopped the tournaments, we would have seen it, in favour of “Khimki”. Unfortunately, this was not to happen.
— How high is the chance that we still see Mozgov on the floor in a t-shirt of “Khimki”?
— Experienced the following situation: after it became clear that all the competitions are completed, Timothy decided to go to the doctor to diagnose your sore knee. After the diagnosis and advice of a doctor, it was decided to make cleaning of the knee. In any case — this operation, though not very serious, but after that, the recovery process takes three to four months. He is now recovering, and then will gradually with Khimki train, and only then, after some time, it will be clear not only to us but to himself. It will take an independent decision — to go to the club on the parquet or finish with professional basketball.
In the last season of VTB United League Brains on the floor did not appear, continuing to recover from a knee injury.
