Mete has been one of the key members for Canada’s defence, with his speed and transition game helping them to finish the preliminary round atop Group A. The extent of his injury is now known, but hopefully he will not miss significant time in the tournament.
UPDATE: Mete will be in the lineup for Tuesday’s quarter-final.
Ducharme says Victor Mete will play tomorrow vs. 🇨🇭, despite missing practice today. He says Mete was injured against 🇺🇸, not 🇩🇰, and needed "an extra day."— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) January 1, 2018
