The Philadelpha Sixers’ star, Mike Muscala is in line to miss a total number of four matches for the team.
On the other hand, though, the basketball star is set to also undergo a kind of re-evaluation within seven days.
Muscala will not play in the 76ers’ game against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse holding on Wednesday night.
The reserve post player suffered a facial laceration alongside a broken nose after colliding with a colleague during Tuesday’s training.
This will mark the third game in which he has so far missed out on during the new 2018/19 season.
He was aso on the injury sidelines in the opening two outings of the season with a sprained left ankle.
Sixers’ rotation uncertainty will surely be a bumpy road for quite a while.
And that is the case with yet another tough road test on tap for Sixers, this time around against Pacers.
Muscala receives six stitches
Meanwhile, Muscala received nothing less than a total number of six stitches to close the laceration.
And as a result of this, he will wear a protective mask after he lands the clearance to start playing.
He will, however, have a re-evaluation in a week which means that Muscala will miss at least three more games.
The trio of games are against the Utah Jazz this Friday, Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday, and Miami Heat come Monday.
Robert Covington who is also making a recovery from a lower back soreness is still on the list as doubtful.
Muscala, 27, has in the last few weeks been scoring an average 7.4 points and 3.1 rebounds in 20 minutes.
He has been shooting 37.6 percent on three-pointers with his best game this season against former team, the Atlanta Hawks.
That was on on October 29 when he made 4 of 6 three-pointers on the road to scoring 14 points.
The Sixers actually bought Muscala this summer from the Hawks in a three-team trade which included the Oklahoma City Thunder.
And he will make a fee which is in the region of $5million in the last year of his deal.
