Zenit St. Petersburg were blown out in yesterday's match against FC Barcelona and unfortunately, head coach Xavi Pascual didn't have any positive news regarding Shabazz Napier's return to the coart.

Asked about Shabazz Napier's injury, the Spanish coach admitted he is not ready yet: "He will be out for at least one month more."

Napier suffered an injury during Zenit St. Petersburg's last pre-season game against CSKA Moscow on September 19.

"He has a rather serious injury to the ligaments of the right ankle joint," Zenit GM said after Napier was evaluated. "On the positive side, I can say that there is no fracture and, therefore, there is no need for surgery. We have all the necessary conditions to get him back on the floor quickly. All is needed is the support of the fans."
