Scottie Wilbekin and Othello Hunter are expected to compete in the rescheduled conclusion of the 2019-20 Super League season for Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv, according to Walla.

Both players initially stayed in Israel and later through the coronavirus pandemic moved back to the USA, but will return.

Elijah Bryant stayed and as his two above teammates, is contracted for the next season. However, he will probably be sidelined with his wife about to give birth.

Fellow American Sandy Cohen and Italian Angelo Caloiaro are looking towards being active for the final stage of the domestic championship despite not originally registered for the Israeli league. Remaining in the country during the hiatus simplified the process for Maccabi.

Also, captain John DiBartolomeo is likely to return from his long injury layoff. Draft prospect Deni Avdija is expected to play as well.

In addition, Amar’e Stoudemire, Jake Cohen, Yovel Zoosman, and Dori Sahar will stand registered for the remainder of the Super League season.

Israel’s top-tier division will resume on June 20 following a two-week quarantine period starting on May 17 and a three-week training timeframe.
