Bullets import ruled out for season

The Brisbane Bullets’ finals aspirations have copped a blow with American import Vic Law ruled out of the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.

Law has missed the past three games through injury, and after further testing and consultation with specialists, it has been discovered that he has a torn tendon in his ankle and will require surgery.

The Bullets have a recruitment process under way to find a suitable replacement for the 25-year-old small forward.

Brisbane coach Andrej Lemanis knows how important Law is to his squad but has every confidence in the group moving forward.

“We have a wonderful, talented group of people committed to this team and to team success – it’s been a long time since I’ve felt this connected with a group,” Lemanis said.

“That gives us a chance to do some special things this season and grind through the inevitable highs and lows that lay ahead.

“But I’m disappointed for Vic at the news that he will need surgery to repair the damage to his ankle.

“It is positive that Vic is choosing to have the surgery and the early part of his rehab here with us – this is a great endorsement of our medical team and I’m pleased that, as a club, we will be able to support him as he begins his recovery process.

“We all wish Vic a successful surgery and a smooth recovery process. I look forward to seeing him back on court and, hopefully, back in a Bullets uniform next season.”

The Bullets will look to back up Wednesday’s big win over Illawarra when they take on United in Melbourne on Monday.
