Per the Israeli journalist Roi Cohen, Maccabi Tel-Aviv point guard Jeremy Pargo will remain out of action for two months.
The American player suffered a back injury two weeks ago, prior to the team’s opening game against Panathinaikos in Athens (11/10).
Although his injury was not initially considered a serious one, the situation deteriorated and Pargo will be out for two months.
Maccabi took to Twitter and revealed that the player will go to the United States for three weeks, as part of the rehabilitation process. His situation will be re-evaluated after his return to Israel.
As a result, the club will start looking to acquire a high-quality guard as his replacement.

ג'רמי פארגו סובל כידוע מכאבים בגבו. הגארד יצא הבוקר לארה"ב לתקופת החלמה בת 3 שבועות, זאת לאחר שנצטווה על מנוחה מוחלטת במשך תקופה זו. לאחר מכן יחזור השחקן ארצה להערכה מחודשת pic.twitter.com/KxNeBn2fwO
