The revelation was made earlier on Thursday on Twitter by teammate Ivan "AiyvaN" Semenets, with CIS pundit and caster Oleksandr "petr1k" Petryk confirming the situation and adding that the team are "urgently looking for a stand-in" for the event.
HLTV.org knows that pro100 have already contacted ESL enquiring about the possibility of fielding a stand-in at the Major. If the request is denied, they will have to play with coach Arseny "ceh9" Trynozhenko, who was promoted to head coach last month.
The CIS Minor will take place from January 16-20 in Katowice, Poland. Eight teams from the region will contend for two spots in the New Challengers stage of the upcoming Major, IEM Katowice 2019, as well as a spot at the Minors' play-in.
Kenzor most likely to not attend minor due to health issues . Get well bro— Ivan Semenets (@AiyvaNCSGO) January 10, 2019
UPDATE: ESL have denied pro100's request for a roster change in time for the CIS Minor. The team will now have to either hope for kenzor's fast recovery, or, more likely, employ coach ceh9 as a fifth.
