As Barcelona informed Monday, Thomas Heurtel was successfully operated in Lyon after suffering a knee injury ahead of the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

According to the Spanish club’s announcement, Heurtel will have to stay out of action for five months.

Heurtel initially faced discomfort on his knee while preparing with the French National Team and his check-up revealed the injury that ruled him out of the World Cup a few days ago.
