Burstein Doubtful for Hungary
Uri Savir ,09/13/2005
Israel might play tonight one of its most important games, against Hungary, without captain Tal Burstein, who missed the morning practice because of a back injury.

Tal Burstein, Israel's national team captain, is doubtful for tonight's win or go home game against Hungary (20:00 CET). Burstein woke up with huge pains in his back, and missed the morning's practice. Dr. Weis said he's not too optimistic, but the staff and his teammates hope he'll play anyway.

Maccabi Tel Aviv's guard led Israel in points, rebounds and assists last night in the win against the Czech Republic (83-78) with 16, 7 and 4 respectively. In 33 minutes he made 4 of 5 shots from the floor, but only 6 of 14 foul shots.
