Per the report, Lighty will be sidelined for two months, at least.

In 4 Pro LNB A contests, David Lighty posted 7.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 8.3 PIR.

The 1.95-meter swingman missed the start of the season due to personal reasons. He gradually gained strength and came out of his best match in EuroLeague against UNICS Kazan (19 points).
