Metropolitans 92 announced that their center Miralem Halilovic has been diagnosed with a displaced jaw fracture.

The big man will undergo surgery, including osteosynthesis, and will be out for at least three months which means he will very likely miss the rest of the season.

Halilovic suffered the injury during the French League game against Roanne when the opposing Boubacar Toure intentionally punched him in the face.

Toure was immediately kicked out of the game and there weren’t any additional incidents. The Senegalese center is waiting for the decision of the French League regarding the punishment.

Per Metropolitans 92:

The Metropolitans 92 club informs you that following the deliberate blow to our player Miralem Halilovic, during the Jeep® Elite match against Roanne, the latter suffers from a displaced fracture of the jaw. In the next few days, he will undergo surgical reduction as well as osteosynthesis.

Unavailable for a minimum period of 3 months, Miralem will probably be absent from the courts until the end of the season.

The club gives him all their support and wishes him a good recovery.
