Matthew "Akaadian" Higginbotham will start on Team SoloMid's LCS roster as Jonathan "Grig" Armao's is dealing with wrist health issues.
Gabriel "Fanatiik" Saucier was added to the TSM Academy team to replace Akaadian.
We've been working with @TSM_Grig to diagnose and resolve wrist issues, taking every precaution to ensure the long term health of his wrist. Meanwhile, please welcome @FanatiiK_Lol who will be helping our academy team during the spring season as @Akaadian works with our LCS team.— TSM (@TSM) January 12, 2019
Akaadian is coming from Team SoloMid's academy team when he has signed this past offseason. Team SoloMid on a whole didn't make as much of a splash in the offseason compared to other LCS teams or LEC teams.
The LCS will begin on Jan. 26.
