The French Basketball Federation announced that national team center Moustapha Fall suffered a thigh injury during practice on Wednesday.

Olympiacos Piraeus center will miss the upcoming 2023 World Cup Qualifiers and EuroBasket 2022.

It's not the first loss for France at the front line, as NBA prospect Victor Wembanyama had already been ruled out due to an injury, in addition, guard Andrew Albicy left the training camp at the very start of it due to an injury as well.

The 30-year-old Fall felt muscle pain in his thigh during the practice on Wednesday. The examinations revealed that the center is injured and will have to sit out the rest of the summer at the very least.

The 2.21-meters tall Fall was set to return to the national team after last year's Olympics in Tokyo, where he won a silver medal with the French national team.

After first gathering in Paris for medical testing on July 29, the French roster began its training camp on July 31 in Nanterre. Only a week of practice is scheduled for the team as the first friendly match will take place on August 7.
