FC Barcelona announced that Cory Higgins has not recovered from the back injury he has been dealing with and will remain out of action.

The American guard will continue his conservative treatment and the medical staff will re-evaluate him in the coming weeks. At the moment, Cory Higgins has no timetable for his return and it is unknown how much time he will miss.

Cory Higgins has been out for the past four weeks and last played in the road game vs Armani Milano in early November (November 4).

For its part, FC Barcelona will also have to deal with the absence of Nick Calathes, who will be out for six weeks and could return in early to mid January.
