With the accidental injury of Abdul Saramu, the Xinjiang team’s championship pattern this season has also cast a shadow.
Without such an absolute core player, the overall strength of the team is suddenly weakened.
However, the injury of “Antetokounmpo” has become a fait accompli. Although no one can replace his role on the field, how to minimize the loss of the lineup?
I am afraid that it is the problem that the coach Ah Dei Jiang urgently needs to think about and solve…
On the 26th, the Xinjiang Men’s Basketball Club officially announced that Abdul Saramu was diagnosed with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee joint.
When the news came, everyone from ordinary fans to industry insiders was surprised and regretted.
Although the announcement did not give Abdul Saramu’s recovery time, in view of the many cases of ligament rupture, it basically means that Abdul Saramu may miss the rest of the season.
Obviously, Abdul Saramu’s accidental injury will have a major impact on the Xinjiang team’s technical and tactical play, and it will also make the team’s championship this season suddenly confusing.
This season, although the Xinjiang team ushered in the return of Zhou Qi, for Abdul Saramu, the performance and statistics of this season have not declined.
In an average of 33.9 minutes per game, he can contribute 16.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists for the team, and his scoring and rebounding rank among the top three of the team.
As the team’s forward swingman, Saramu plays the third position this season. With his excellent sense of smell and superb basketball IQ, he can not only use running positions frequently to get offensive opportunities at the basket, but also at critical moments.
Give the opponent a fatal blow from the outside.
This season, in the absence of foreign aid, the Xinjiang team relied on the outstanding performance of domestic players such as Abdul Saramu and Zhou Qi to keep the Xinjiang team in the top three positions in the CBA standings.
Today, the direct impact of Abdul Saramu’s injury is that the team has become stretched at the small forward position.
In the past, Saramu and Kolan Bek played the third position, but with Saramu’s injury, the pressure and burden fell on Kolan Bek’s shoulders. As the captain of the Xinjiang men’s basketball team, Kolan Bek’s foot injury
It has been tormenting him, and now it seems that Kolan Bek still has to grit his teeth and persevere with his wounds.
More importantly, due to the injury of Abdul Saramu, who is 2.02 meters tall, the Xinjiang team’s field height has also dropped sharply. The previous spectacular scene of three players over 2 meters on the field at the same time may disappear completely…
Abdul Saramu’s accidental injury made the Xinjiang men’s basketball team anxious at the No. 3 position.
In the face of the team’s current predicament, coach Ah’s Jiang may completely activate a young player, and that is Tang Caiyu.
Tang Caiyu entered the team’s rotation this season and played 19 games on behalf of the team. In an average of 12.5 minutes of playing time per game, he contributed 4.6 points, 1.1 rebounds and 0.5 assists for the team. He once had a good performance of 17 points in a single game.
Although Tang Caiyu is not as good as Abdul Saramu in terms of height and experience, but at present, it seems that he can only be ordered in the face of danger.
In addition, Qi Lin, the “first high school student” with a height of 2.02 meters, may also be activated as another candidate for the third position.
“Sailing against the current, if you don’t advance, you will retreat”, although Abdul Saramu’s injury has dealt a great blow to the team.
But for the Xinjiang team with lofty aspirations, they must not bow their heads and shrink back in front of the immediate predicament.
Seeing the rainbow after the storm, we look forward to the flying tiger soldiers facing the difficulties and continuing to move towards the set goal.
At the same time, I also pray that Abdul Saramu will recover and return to the game as soon as possible…
