The Tokyo Apache, who were swept by the host Toyama Grouses over the weekend, sustained losses to two key players over the weekend. Jumpei Nakama sustained a torn left ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) and will miss the rest of the season, the team announced.
John "Helicopter" Humphrey, the team's leading scorer and last year's bj-league scoring champion, scored 40 points on Saturday, but he injured his left wrist in defeat and did not play on Sunday. He is expected to miss the Apache's next four games.
