A routine cardiac examination Flaccadori underwent, revealed the presence of a benign formation at the anterior flap of the mitral valve. While the situation isn’t considered dangerous, the formation needs to be removed.

Flaccadori, 22, will be operated as soon as possible and is expected to resume basketball activities following a rehabilitation period of 20 days.

Trento is currently down 0 – 2 in the best-of-seven title series.
