Counter Logic Gaming AD carry Trevor "Stixxay" Hayes has been hospitalized and will miss Week 9's NA LCS games. He will be replaced by team captain and support Zaqueri "Aphromoo" Black for this week's games, CLG announced on Facebook Saturday.
CLG’s support substitute Joseph “Joey” Haslemann will be joining Aphromoo, playing in the bottom lane as the team’s support in this week’s games. Joey, previously known as TheAirIsDry, has yet to play a game for CLG this season. He last played for Team Checkpoint in the 2016 NA CS Summer Open Qualifiers.
The organization did not specify why Stixxay was hospitalized, only stating that he will be unable to play due to a "medical emergency" that occurred on Friday night.
CLG is currently fourth in the NA LCS standings with a 9-7 record, and are guaranteed a seed into the playoffs no matter how they finish the final week of the season. They are set to face off against Immortals and Team EnVyUs this weekend.
