Chinanews Client Beijing, June 10th. The Chinese Basketball Team announced on the evening of the 9th that Yi Jianlian, Guo Ailun, and Wang Zhelin bid farewell to the current national team due to the recovery cycle or injury problems.
Today, there is only about one week left for the first match of the Chinese Men's Basketball Asian Cup qualifiers. These three players will not go to the Philippines with the team.
The announcement stated that Yi Jianlian (Guangdong), Guo Ailun (Liaoning) and Wang Zhelin (Fujian) had to bid farewell to the national team due to the recovery cycle or injury.
After the preliminaries of the league and the National Games, the Chinese men's basketball team had a short rest period, less training time, and no warm-up match. Coupled with the withdrawal of the three generals, the national team's preparation for this competition was indeed difficult.
The importance of Yi Jianlian, Guo Ailun and Wang Zhelin to the team is self-evident.
After they withdrew due to injury, young players need to take on more responsibilities.
Yi Jianlian said, "Regardless of whether I went out to play or not, I am a member of the Chinese men's basketball team. Our team is one mind."
For this training camp, the Chinese men's basketball coach Du Feng previously said that the difficulties faced by the national team this time are very great.
"From the time I entered the national team as a player to the present, the current Chinese men's basketball team is the most difficult period I have experienced. I hope that all players and coaches under the leadership of the Chinese Basketball Association can overcome this difficulty. I also hope that the whole country loves and supports it. Chinese basketball fans, can give us more confidence and tolerance."
Today, there is only about one week left for the first match of the Chinese Men's Basketball Asian Cup qualifier. According to the plan, the Chinese men's basketball team will go to the Philippines on the 13th.
