Price ruled out of BetMGM Premier League in Aberdeen with back problem

Gerwyn Price (PDC)

Gerwyn Price has withdrawn from Thursday's BetMGM Premier League night in Aberdeen as he continues to struggle with a back problem.

2021 World Champion Price was unable to compete in last weekend's Austrian Darts Open after suffering a trapped nerve in his back.

The Welshman has undergone treatment since last Friday but has not recovered sufficiently to travel to Scotland to take part in Night 14 at P&J Live.

Under tournament rules, Price's planned quarter-final opponent in Aberdeen, Luke Humphries, now receives a Bye into the semi-finals on Thursday, as well as gaining two league points and +1 leg difference.

Price, meanwhile, receives -6 leg difference on the league table.
