Ribas expected to miss nine months
FC Barcelona Lassa guard Pau Ribas successfully underwent surgery on Friday to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon in his left foot. The club confirmed on Saturday that Ribas is expected to be out 9 months, which means he will miss the remainder of this season. Ribas, 29, suffered the injury midway through the second quarter of Round 3 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. 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.
