Lazio have another addition to the injury list, as Stefan Radu skipped a training session and Marius Stankevicius will undergo surgery.
The Biancocelesti are struggling with fitness problems since the start of the season and the situation deteriorated ahead of Sunday’s trip to Udine.
Radu did not take part in today’s training session due to “the deterioration of his condition over the last 24 hours,” read a club statement.
Hernanes continued physiotherapy, while Stankevicius has booked surgery for May 11 to clean up a chronic problem in the left Achilles heel.
Also out of Sunday’s big head-to-head for third place are Senad Lulic, Miroslav Klose, Cristian Brocchi, Stephen Makinwa and the suspended Antonio Candreva.
