LWorst fears about Cory Higgins injury have come true and everything indicates that Barcelona will not be able to count on one of its stars for a long period of time, in which the azulgrana team will play a good part of the season. You’ll have to do it without one of their most decisive players. For quality and instinct, there are few better in the hot moments of the meetings.

As announced by @palauresist, a Twitter account that follows the news of the Barcelona basketball section, Higgins has almost decided to go under the knife to overcome plantar fasciitis that drags The club’s doctors have recommended the operation after the player tried to rush through all the options.

The estimated period of sick leave after such an injury is about three or four months. Of course the nearby Copa del Rey would miss it, but also the Euroleague quarterfinal playoffs and, in the most optimistic of scenarios, it would arrive very fair and with hardly any competition rhythm at the Final Four, which will be played on May 27 and 29.

Higgins is being hit hard by injuries this season. The Barcelona escort already suffered back problems in november and he’s had this plantar fasciitis for a long time which now probably requires surgery. He has only been able to play nine of the 17 games in the Endesa League and 13 of the 24 in the Euroleague.
