Barcelona swingman Alex Abrines will be out for four months after being operated in his left knee for a patellofemoral injury, the club announced.

Abrines got hurt earlier this week following the Spanish SuperCup tournament held in Tenerife. Barcelona announced that the Spanish player will undergo surgery Thursday (16/9) and that his recovery time will be determined following the operation.

Barca will be without Abrines for more than the first half of the EuroLeague regular season since the player is expected back around mid January. The Blaugrana, last season’s runner-up, will begin the 2021-22 EuroLeague with a home game against Alba Berlin on October 1st.
