BC Wolves will keep Artūrs Žagars on team roster until end of the season

The BC Wolves welcomed back Artūrs Žagars upon his return to the Vilnius-based club from Turkey after he underwent successful surgery and a short rehabilitation period to deal with a serious knee injury that he suffered in a Betsafe-LKL game back in October 2023.

The BC Wolves announced that it has reached an agreement with Istanbul’s Fenerbahçe club that he will continue rehabilitation and recovery in Lithuania with the help of physiotherapists and the physical training coach of the Lithuanian capital’s team.

Before the surgery, it was assessed that recovery time from the torn medial collateral ligament would take at least 5 months, but the healing process of the injury is happening faster than planned, so A.Žagars’ line-up activation may happen sooner.

However, the exact recovery timetable for A. Žagars, who belongs to Fenerbahçe and is on loan to the Wolves team, to return to the court is unclear. The medical specialists of both clubs are closely monitoring the condition of the leg and are ready to respond to any changes in the rehabilitation process.

Currently, he is exercising and practising individually – lifting weights in the gym, doing regular shootarounds, and is already starting to run.

The Latvian ballhandler averaged 12 points, 5 assists and 3 rebounds in the Betsafe-LKL championship this season, logging 13 utility points per game.
