He is undergoing the necessary examinations and will not be able to help the team in the next matches.

Nikola Milutinov and Marius Grigonis also will not participate in the duel versus Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade.

CSKA do not have the newcomer Kenneth Faried at their disposal yet. He should fly from the USA in the coming days.

"Unfortunately, anything can happen. We hope for the best [about Shengelia's injury]. Toko's shoulder hurt, we don't want to risk it, he will be tested. He felt better today, but not to the level required for tough play," said CSKA bench boss Dimitris Itoudis.

Toko Shengelia averaged 21 points, 6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in 3 EuroLeague games this season.
