According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona star player Cory Higgins is expected to get back to training in the upcoming days. Higgins has been sidelined with a back injury since early November.

The club is taking the rehabilitation slowly and steadily and is not pushing the star guard to come back to court. Higgins is expected to make important steps in the coming days. The return to court date is not clear yet.

Barcelona is currently missing five players - Higgins, Alex Abrines, Nigel Hayes-Davis, Sergi Martinez, and Nick Calathes. Calathes and Abrines are expected to be back in January.

Abrines has been sidelined since September when he underwent knee surgery, while Calathes hasn't been in the lineup for the last month. The Spaniard is expected to be back at the end of January, the Greek should return during the middle of the month.

The Spanish powerhouse has signed Dante Exum while the Higgins absence continues. Higgins has played 8 matches in the Euroleague, averaging 10.6 points, 2 rebounds, and 1.6 assists for 10 PIR.
