Lakovic out for 6-8 weeks
As Regal FC Barcelona announced Tuesday, point guard Jaka Lakovic(1.88-PG/SG) will be sidelined from six to eight weeks. After medical tests, it was determined that he will have to undergo nose surgery in the days to come, and that will cause him to miss the rest of the Top 16.
This season, Lakovic has played 9 games so far with Barcelona in the Euroleague averaging 7.8 points and 2.7 assists in almost 20 minutes of play each night. This situation will leave Barcelona with Andre Barrett as only point guard for the next games, even though Top 16 teams will be able to sign new players two days before the start of the Top 16 Week 4.
