G2 Esports' Mihael 'Mikyx' Mehle has been suffering with a wrist injury, but head coach Fabian 'GrabbZ' Lohmann has released a statement saying that he has started scrimming with the team again and is about to start games at the Mid-Season Invitational after taking time out to focus on his health.
That said, G2 also adds that they're closing monitoring Mikyx and that Hampus 'Promisq' Mikael Abrahamsson is ready to step in if needed at the international event.
Mikyx himself spoke about playing at MSI on Instagram, saying the following:
"I've always really wanted to play MSI and play all other top teams from the other regions, but right now I'm not so sure if that is gonna be possible given that I'm still very much restricted due to the injury. The healing and recovery takes priority, but I'm gonna give it my all nonetheless."
Is Mikyx essential for G2?
