Pablo Prigioni Out Against Tunisia Due To Renal Colic

Argentina's national team shouldn't have any trouble dispatching Tunisia in Thursday morning's basketball game, but their odds got slightly worse when a bit of breaking news broke just prior to the matchup beginning. Starting point guard Pablo Prigioni -- a recent signing by the New York Knicks -- was scratched from the starting lineup due to renal colic.

"Renal colic" isn't something the average American household knows a lot about, but a quick trip to the always reliable renalcolic.org explains that renal colic is just the term for "the pain associated with the presence of kidney stones in the bladder."

Hopefully Prigioni is able to pass the kidney stones sooner rather than later -- and that Manu Ginobili, Luis Scola and Andres Nocioni can handle their business until their point guard returns.
