Datome, 31, was hurt during the fourth quarter of his team's Turkish League victory over Darussafaka Tekfen Istanbul on Sunday. He scored 14 points in near-perfect shooting to aid Fenerbahce in the 72-87 win. For the season, Datome has been worth 9.0 points on 41.5% three-point shooting and 3.6 rebounds in Turkish Airlines EuroLeague action. He has appeared in all 34 of Fenerbahce's games, including 15 as a starter. This is Datome's fourth season with Fenerbahce. He helped the club win the 2017 EuroLeague and was named to the 2015-16 All-EuroLeague team.
