Basketball: Coach Edelstein announces Israel roster

Israel coach Erez Edelstein named his preliminary 16-man roster for September’s EuroBasket tournament on Sunday, with the injured Yotam Halperin and Guy Pnini the only notable absentees.

Captain Halperin and forward Pnini, who were both starters in last summer’s qualifying campaign, were ruled out last week.

Halperin, who helped Hapoel Jerusalem to an historic BSL championship last season, was diagnosed with a back injury, while Pnini has yet to fully recover from the surgery he underwent on his Achilles last November.
