Nigel Hayes tests positive and remains confined in Athens

Barça reported this Thursday afternoon that a player from the basketball squad, Nigel Hayes, has tested positive for Covid-19. The forward was already in Athens with the rest of the team to play this Thursday’s match at OAKA against Panathinaikos (8:00 p.m., Dazn), so will remain confined to the Greek capital, according to the Barça club in a statement. The rest of the squad has tested negative and the match will be played, in principle, normally. Jasikevicius already had the absences due to injury of Calathes, Higgins, Abrines and Sergi Martínez, that of the latter known in the previous one.

Barcelona played on Tuesday in Belgrade against Red Star, which they beat 69-76 with a great performance from Hayes, who achieved 14 points and a PIR of 23 in 28:38 on the court. The culé expedition flew directly to Athens on Wednesday in a charter flight to face a new double day of the Euroleague. If we go back further in time, until Sunday, the Catalans then visited Lenovo Tenerife in the Endesa League: victory 60-75 with another 14 goals from Hayes with 26:25 on the track. This Friday the team will also return to Barcelona on a private flight.
