Statement regarding James Faulkner

18 January 2021

James Faulkner has left the BBL hub and returned to Hobart this afternoon, after re-aggravating his hamstring at training yesterday.

Faulkner initially injured his hamstring in the Hurricanes clash with the Brisbane Heat at the Gabba on December 27.  He had been progressing well with his rehabilitation, with an eyeing to be eligible for selection for the latter games of the tournament.

Faulkner will undergo scans in Hobart to asses the extent of the injury at this point in time, and resume treatment back home.

At this stage, it is unlikely that Faulkner will be able to take any further part in the tournament.
