KRIMZ played IEM Rio Major with injured hand, will miss Elisa Masters Espoo 2022


Fnatic veteran Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson injured his hand. He got his nerve pinched by the muscles in the middle of the palm, which will require him to rest for a while. He explained his situation on Twitter.

KRIMZ will "most likely" miss Elisa Masters Espoo 2022, a $100k event with a slot in Katowice 2023 for the winner. Peppe "Peppzor" Borak will replace him at the event.

The 28-year-old Johansson said that he noticed the injury two days after the RMR and played at IEM Rio Major 2022 with it. He thought the trauma wasn't too serious for him to skip such an important event. Fnatic doesn't have any event scheduled after Elisa, so the veteran will have plenty of time to recover.

The club has been doing great for the last half of the year. After their latest reshuffle, the team climbed up almost to the HLTV's top 10 and had a good Major run, reaching playoffs. In the RMR, KRIMZ posted a 1.19 rating and averaged a decent 1.05 in Rio.
