Timofey Mozgov, the center of the Russian national team, will not be able to help the national team at the upcoming World Championships in China. The reason for this decision was a knee injury.
“My overall recovery is going well. There is tangible progress. I have already started running exercises and throws. However, unfortunately, I haven’t yet received permission from doctors to start basketball work in full contact. I hope it will happen soon and I will please the fans with my game. I wish good luck to the Russian national team. It’s a pity I won’t be able to help it at this championship. But, as I said repeatedly, if I am healthy, I am always ready to respond to the invitation of the coaching staff”,” said Timofey Mozgov.
