Berlin (AP) - The German basketball master Alba Berlin has to do without Luke Sikma and Niels Giffey for several weeks.

Power Forward Sikma sustained a muscle injury in his thigh and captain Giffey sustained a foot injury, Alba announced on Saturday.

Both players are not only missing in the top encounter on Sunday against Bayern Munich (6 p.m. / Magentasport), but also in the following games.

In total, Alba has to compete twelve times in the Bundesliga and Euroleague in January.

Alba manager Marco Baldi had already said before the game against arch rivals that the team was walking on stick.

In addition to Sikma and Giffey, Peyton Siva, Ben Lammers and Marcus Eriksson are missing three other regulars.

In addition, coach Aito Garcia Reneses is in quarantine.
