Mundo Deportivo reports that Abrines will be out for up to four months after the surgery. However, Barcelona will reportedly not go on the market to look for a replacement.

It was earlier reported that Abrines suffered an injury and was undergoing tests. At this point, it remains unclear how long will the guard-forward be out of action. The club promised to provide a new medical statement once the intervention was completed.

Last season Abrines (28, 1.98) appeared in 39 EuroLeague games (33 starts). In 18.4 minutes of playing time, he averaged 6.1 points and 1.8 rebounds per game, while shooting 42% from 3-point range.
