Maccabi is bringing back Marcus Fizer
Maccabi Tel Aviv is bringing back Marcus Fizer(2.01-C). Fizer will be monitored by the medical staff of Maccabi to deem if his condition progresses good enough for the team to re-instate him in their roster in a few weeks time.
Fizer returned to Israel on Sunday. According to the Euroleague Official Site, Fizer is scheduled to be examined by the surgeon who operated on him a few months ago and be under the close supervision of Maccabi's physiotherapist, Rafi Virshuvski. "The operation on Marcus’s knee was successful," said Virshuvski. "The problem is the knee needs to be strengthened. Right now, there’s little-to-no strength in the knee, and it can’t support much weight, particularly that of Marcus himself." According to Virshuvski, Fizer is expected to be back on court in late December if the rehabilitation goes as planned.
