Bul­let to miss clash with old club

Warwick Daily News - - SPORT - BAS­KET­BALL:

For­mer Taipan Cameron Glid­don’s first meet­ing against his old club will need to wait, with the shoot­ing guard likely to miss tonight’s pre­sea­son clash in Rock­hamp­ton.

Bris­bane vet­eran Adam Gib­son – a new team­mate of Glid­don’s at the Bul­lets – has played down the pend­ing grudge match, point­ing to Cairns’ off­sea­son turnover of their ros­ter.

“Cairns have pretty much a whole new team now,” Gib­son said.

Af­ter their closed-doors pre­sea­son game on Wed­nes­day night in Cen­tral Queens­land, the two NBL clubs will play in front of a crowd tonight as they ramp up to­wards round one of the 2018-19 sea­son.

Glid­don is re­cov­er­ing from back surgery and Gib­son says the for­mer Cairns cap­tain is on track for a re­turn soon.

“Cam had a shad­ing of a disc in his back – it was not a ma­jor thing,” Gib­son said.

“He is back run­ning, shoot­ing and what­ever. I ex­pect him to be back on court with the team over the next week.”

Glid­don will come up against Cairns on Oc­to­ber 13 in Bris­bane’s first home game of the sea­son. — Jor­dan Ger­rans
