The American guard will be re-evaluated in the coming weeks, via the statement.

Nick Calathes will be out for six more weeks as well. Via Mundo Deportivo and Encestando reports, Barca start searching for a new backcourt player to help them over the next few months.

The Catalans have Nicolas Laprovittola and Rokas Jokubaitis to substitute 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 32-year-old averaged 10.6 points, 2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 10 PIR over 8 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague games until his setback.
