Isaac Heeney is looking at significant time on the sidelines after he was subbed out of Thursday night’s victory with a crack in his right hand.

Sydney coach John Longmire confirmed Heeney had broken his hand and voiced his distraught at the star forward’s run with injuries.

“It’s terrible luck for him”, Longmire said post-game.

“He’s one of our best preparers, he’s worked so hard to come back from his ankle.”

Heeney missed the majority of season 2020 with an ankle injury that required season-ending surgery after playing the first six rounds of the season.

“He has a crack in his hand”, Longmire revealed.

“I’m not sure what the official diagnosis is.”

Heeney’s teammate Sam Reid echoed Longmire’s concern.

“Its a shame. He’s been in great form but I’m sure he’ll do everything he can to come back strong,” he said.

The 24-year-old is looking at a four to six week stint on the sideline.

The Swans will enjoy a nine day break before their Battle of the Bridge derby with the Giants, but will go into the clash without Heeney.
