After losing 100-90 to Virtus Bologna on Friday, Maccabi Tel Aviv are starting to prepare for their first league game this season on Monday against Bnei Herzliya. The most pressing issue of all is how many and which foreigners are expected to arrive in Israel for the game.
Israel Hayom has learned that in addition to all the Israelis, the three foreigners expected to join the roster are Antonius Cleveland, James Webb and Jaciel Rivero. There is hope that either Josh Nivo or Bonzi Coulson will also join, while Wade Baldwin and Lorenzo Brown will return to Belgrade and not take part in the game. In any case, the Yellows are expected to arrive at every game in the local framework with 3-4 foreigners beyond the Israelis and the division will be carried out in rotation between games.
Beyond the league game, the Yellows will also meet Anadolu Efes this week, who will arrive with a particularly lacking squad, and Maccabi is very optimistic that captain John DiBartolomeo will be able to return to the squad after an absence of 5 consecutive Euroleague games due to a groin injury.
