Ivan Ukhov "will not play in the next games" due to a sprained right ankle, according to CSKA's official Twitter account.

Ukhov went down with an injury during Sunday's domestic game against UNICS Kazan and will miss his team's next contests. The report did not specify the time of recovery, so it remains to be seen when he will play next.

"An examination at the Moscow GMS Clinic revealed damage to one of the ligaments of the right ankle joint. Ivan will undergo a course of conservative therapy," the CSKA announcement states.

However, with Ukhov set to sit out more than one game, the Russian guard will not be available for CSKA's next EuroLeague game against Maccabi in Moscow next Thursday.

Coach Dimitris Itoudis saw Nikola Milutinov return to action in the recent game at Kazan, while Tornike Shengelia had made his comeback in another CSKA loss, to Kavel Cramo a week earlier. Marius Grigonis is still sidelined with back problems.
