Faker’s injury comeback delayed after T1 star misses original return date

T1 has been without its legendary mid laner Faker for the entire month of July as the 11-year veteran went down with an arm injury on July 2 and has since missed the League of Legends team’s last five matches, including today’s 2-0 loss to Hanwha Life Esports. 

Originally, Faker was supposed to make his comeback today as the team had targeted a two-week window for his return to the stage, with the match against Hanwha Life being the earliest possible series that Faker could have been back in the mix. Today, however, Faker was nowhere to be seen as mid lane substitute Poby played his fifth consecutive match with the team while Faker continued to be sidelined.
