Maccabi forward Segev out four months due to foot injury

Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv forward Itay Segev is expected to miss four months due to a broken foot, the club announced on Friday morning. Segev (2.04 meters, 21 years old) suffered the injury in the last minute of a preseason cup game on Thursday against Ironi Nahariya. The fracture will require him to undergo surgery, which will be performed early next week. If the esimated recovery period goes as planned, Segev could be back for the last third of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague regular season. Segev debuted in the EuroLeague as a 17-year-old back in 2012, then spent one season each at Israeli clubs Hapoel Holon and Galil Gilboa, before returning to Maccabi and scoring his first EuroLeague points last season.
