Russian basketball club Moscow CSKA will soon terminate contract with Latvian point guard Janis Strelnieks, according to Russian portal championat.ru, writes LETA. 

Citing an unnamed source, the portal says that CSKA will terminate Strelnieks' contract in the near future. One of the reasons is Strelnieks' frequent injuries that have prevented the player from attaining his full potential.

In 21 Euroleague games this season, Strelnieks has averaged seven points, 1.9 rebounds and two assists. In VTB United League, Strelnieks averaged 7.8 points and 2.2 assists in 13 matches.

During his career, Strelnieks has played for basketball clubs Ventspils, St. Petersburg Spartak, Kiev Budivelnyk and Bamberg Brose. He has also suited up for Latvia at four European Championships.
