Hapoel Gilboa Galil’s head coach, Avishay Gordon, revealed his player, Daniel Sasson, was under a medically induced coma since Wednesday.

Sasson, 27, was hit while riding a bicycle and then hospitalized. He was not carrying any means of identification, but his team learned of his critical condition on Thursday via a photo released. Teammates and other team members were already worried after he did not show up for practice.

The Hapoel Gilboa Galil head coach shared the shocking developments regarding his player’s health after Thursday’s win, 107-91, versus Hapoel SP Tel Aviv in a Winner League Regular Season Round 17 fixture.

The ongoing season is his third straight in Israel’s top-tier division. He joined Hapoel Tel Aviv for the 2018-19 season and went on to Hapoel Unet-Credit Holon last season.
