Brisbane Heat captain Chris Lynn has been ruled out of his team's next six BBL matches because of a hamstring injury.
Lynn injured his hamstring while running for a catch while warming up ahead of the Heat's match against the Adelaide Strikers at the Gabba on December 23. Lynn pulled up sore and limped off the field immediately and had to be replaced in the line-up as the bat-flip had already taken place.
Scans have revealed a low-grade hamstring strain and Lynn will now target a return on January 14 against the Melbourne Renegades in Melbourne.
The Heat's England recruit Lewis Gregory, meanwhile, has come out of his 14-day quarantine after arriving from South Africa earlier in December. Gregory was unable to train during the quarantine period and a decision would have to be made with the Heat medical staff on Sunday as to whether he would take his place in the line-up against the Hobart Hurricanes.
