Although his recovery time remains unknown, it will take the Nigerian center at least six months to get back to action, Andrea Tosi of La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

Even though Virtus Segafredo Bologna managed to win the Italian Super Cup without Udoh, head coach Sergio Scariolo said that the team was looking for a replacement.

There have been reports that the team was looking into acquiring Greg Monroe and Tarik Black to replace the 34-year-old Udoh.
