Bentil suffers injury in Milano league win over Cremona

Ghana Power Forward Ben Bentil suffered an injury in Olimpia Milano’s Serie A win over Vanoli Cremona. Milano beat Cremona 70-61.

The win was however clinched without Bentil bar a few minutes into the fixture since Bentil exited the contest after playing just three minutes.

The 27 year old 6 foot 8 inch player was a starter and registered two points and a steal in three minutes prior to the injury that is yet to be fully detailed by Milano according to BasketNews.

It was a rare start for Bentil who has spent most of his time with the Italian giant as a spark plug off the bench including continental games in the Euroleague Championship.

Bentil is the first Ghana born player to play in the NBA during his brief stint with Dallas Mavericks.

31 year old Ghanaian-Italian Guard David Coournooh played 32 minutes for Cremona and registered seven points and three rebounds.
