Billy Preston left Bosnia after playing only three ABA League games for Igokea, as confirmed by ESPN.

Preston played 47 minutes with Igokea in his three games of action, scoring 21 points with 12 rebounds in total. The 2018 draft prospect decided to leave Bosnia after experiencing shoulder pain, and is “not likely” to return to Europe any time soon.

The Bosnian club released a statement that reads: “Our player Billy Preston has been experiencing consistent discomfort in his left shoulder for the past 2 weeks. He is going to return to the U.S. to consult with a Physician and Physical Therapist. We have such a short season left we don’t want to put him in jeopardy so we support what is best for him to get the best treatment as soon as possible”.
