The uncertain recovery prospects for Cory Higgins, added to the confirmation that Nick Calathes will be out for six more weeks, have led FC Barcelona to start searching for a new player to help them over the next few months, Mundo Deportivo and Encestando report.

Barca have Nicolas Laprovittola and Rokas Jokubaitis to cover Calathes until he recovers. However, with Higgins and Alex Abrines out of the lineup, the team needs reinforcements at the shooting guard position.

Higgins has not played for more than three weeks because of what Barca initially announced as low back pain. The club avoided setting a deadline for his return, although it was expected that his absence would not extend beyond two weeks.

However, the pain in the affected back area increased instead of decreasing for Higgins. The doctors no longer rule out that Higgins' back problem will lead him to spend much more time off.

The American will undergo new tests this week, after which Barcelona will know if a conservative treatment should be maintained, or if Higgins must undergo surgery.

Barca are reportedly looking for a combo guard that can play in both guard positions.
