According to the club's statement, the player's rehabilitation is progressing well. However, he will miss the Spanish Super Cup matches and the start of both Spanish Liga Endesa and the EuroLeague.

Before being sidelined, Mirotic was the leader of the roster, averaging 16.9 points and 5.2 rebounds on 57% shooting for a league-leading 20.1 PIR in the EuroLeague. He was named the MVP of the tournament for his performance after being the runner-up the year before.

Barcelona's first match in Liga Endesa comes next Friday, September 30th, against Gran Canaria. The Catalan powerhouse will start its EuroLeague season with a game at home on October 7th against Olympiacos Piraeus.
