FC Barcelona Lassa guard Pau Ribas will undergo surgery on Friday to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon in his left foot, the club confirmed on Thursday. Ribas, 29, suffered the injury midway through the second quarter on Wednesday’s loss at Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade. Until that point, he had made 3 of 5 three-pointers for 9 points in nine minutes on the floor. The surgery will take place at Hospital de Barcelona. No timetable has been given for his recovery. Ribas is in his second season with Barcelona and averaged 6.1 points on 42.4% three-point shooting and 2.7 assists in a reserve role last season.
