The Italian club Virtus Bologna announced that Nico Mannion, one of their main additions of the summer, won't join the team's training camp, which is taking place in Folgaria. The player will remain in Bologna in the coming weeks to recover from an intestinal infection.

The former Golden State Warriors point guard started to suffer from this issue right after the Olympic tournament. This kind of infection physically weakened him and the medical staff decided that it was best for him to remain in Bologna to recover.

Mannion is expected to fully recover in a couple of weeks. The Italian national team player recently signed a two-year deal with Virtus Bologna. The deal also includes an NBA escape clause for the next summer.
