NBL – Kouat Noi (Cairns Taipans)

#NBL20 Kouat Noi (ankle) OUT vs Breakers, questionable tomorrow vs Sydney

CQUniversity Cairns Taipans forward Kouat Noi (ankle) has again been ruled out of playing following his game-day fitness test this morning, however he will travel to Sydney tomorrow with hopes to suit up on the weekend.

“It was frustrating for everybody last week that he didn’t come up ready, frustrating for him mostly,” – said Coach Kelly.

“We’re still hoping he’ll come up and continue to get better.

“It’s been a slower than we thought it would be. So we’ve got to give him time, and not push him through an injury that needs time.

The language still doesn’t sound very hopeful around Noi as he continues to battle that ankle injury.

Mirko Djeric is the man to own until Noi returns.
