|Johannah Leedhamhas been ruled out of action, at least until the EuroLeague Women playoffs. |
Styliani Kaltsidou has returned to Tango Bourges as cover for in-form swingman Johannah Leedham who has been ruled out for six weeks with an injury.
Great Britain star Leedham has been one of the top performers for the French champions this season, but will miss the next six weeks of action with a stress fracture.
That means at best she will return for the EuroLeague Women play-offs and having averaged 12.9 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists in the competition, the 26-year-old is likely to prove a big miss.
To help fill the void whilst Leedham is on the sidelines recovering, the club have struck a deal for Kaltsidou to return for the remainder of the campaign.
It's almost a year now since the Greek forward was felled by an ACL injury and had her 2012-13 season with Bourges prematurely curtailed.
She has since spent some time locally in her attempts to complete a successful rehab and now Kaltsidou is likely to feature this week in the home EuroLeague Women Group A encounter against the resurgent Kayseri Kaski spor.
