Well, that was defused relatively quickly. A report from Sport24.gr regarding some strong words Linas Kleiza had for Toronto Raptors medical staff has been refuted by the source himself.
Kleiza reportedly told writer Chris Tomasson of the NBA Fanhouse in a phone interview that “I have no problems with Toronto’s medical staff,” and “I don’t know where that [story] came from. I haven’t talked to anybody from Greece. … I think everything was done [in an acceptable manner by Toronto’s medical staff].
While this injury will likely keep Kleiza out of the 2011 Eurobasket tournament in his native Lithuania, BiE wishes the man a speedy recovery for 2011-12!
