Three weeks of rest and treatment is considered necessary. Tobey is questionable for the 7DAYS EuroCup start. Valencia begin their campaign on October 19 against Promitheas Patras.

Osteitis pubis is a painful condition that causes inflammation around the center of the pelvis. It usually occurs as a sports injury due to overuse of the hip and leg muscles.

Tobey accumulated a big workload this summer, as he participated in the 2020 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Kaunas, Lithuania, and later played in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics with Slovenia national team.

In the Olympic Games, he averaged 13.7 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per 6 games.

Last season the 26-year-old played in Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and posted 9.6 points, 5 rebounds in 33 contests.
