Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small, fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, tendons and muscles near the joints

The situation is monitored by the club's medical staff, and in the coming days, it will be decided whether the player will proceed with conservative therapies or with a cleaning operation, which would require him to be sidelined for almost three weeks.

In the latter case, Belinelli could take advantage of the FIBA windows at the end of November, in order to get ready to return at the beginning of December.
