A season debut could be on the cards for Hull Wasps new boy, Michael Likupe tomorrow night when Reddish Rebels visit the Gemtec Arena. 

Likupe joined the Wasps at the beginning of the season and could feature in this weekend's game after 3 players are out through injury and suspension.

Guard Ashley Rice will miss the game after sustaining a long term injury to his knees. Kamil Pilarski and captain Jamie Goodwin will also be on the sidelines after receiving one match bans from England Basketball.

Both players have received their punishment after remarks made towards officials directly after the home game against Wirral Hornets. Both will return for the Wasps next home game against Team Durham Wildcats on January 16.
