Barça player Cory Higgins has received a medical discharge and is part of the team’s squad to visit the Río Breogán this Saturday in the Endesa League match, in which the American shooting guard could return to a court three months after his injury .
Higgins, who was unable to help the team in the Euroleague ‘Playoff’ against Bayern Munich, which ended in favor of the Catalans in the fifth and decisive game at the Palau Blaugrana, could play again on Saturday with the idea of starting to shoot to be in that continental ‘Final Four’.
Injured and operated, on February 14, for chronic plantar fasciitis in his left foot, Higgins has been burning stages in his recovery until he can train with his teammates and, if Sarunas Jasikevicius sees it necessary, be able to play again this Saturday.
With discomfort since the beginning of the year in that left foot, the shooting guard has experienced a particular via crucis by having back discomfort at the end of 2021 that also weighed down a player who, being in top form, is key in the team’s schemes.
This season, despite several absences and playing touchdowns, he has averages of 10.7 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists in just 9 Endesa League games. In the current Euroleague he has played 13 games, with 9.2 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists on average.
