Basketballghana.com gathers Ghana Center Amida Brimah’s foot injury has landed Filou Oostende in a tough spot regarding its playing personnel.
Brimah suffered a foot injury two weeks ago and is expected to miss four more weeks after breaking the metatarsal bone in his foot in a Belgian Pro League game.
Oostende was expected to sign a replacement since the injury is likely to keep the former Indiana Pacers defender out for the remainder of the season but a move for a replacement has hit a snag.
The team can’t sign a replacement after February 14 as per league rules leaving a big hole on Filou’s roster for the latter part of the 2021-2022 Season.
Since joining the Belgian side after a wonderful run in Puerto Rico with Mets de Guaynabo, the 6 foot 10 inch Brimah has played a key role for Filou.
The team played in the Belgian Cup but lost to Limburg United and made it to the Round of 16 in the Basketball Champions League.
Brimah averaged nine points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocked shots in 17.1 minutes across eight games in the league before the injury.
