Mikail "Maikelele" Bill, who has been filling in for Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi on Ninjas in Pyjamas, will be staying with the team for three more tournaments, the player announced on Twitter Thursday morning.

pyth has been taking time away from the team since ESL One: Cologne to recover from a hand injury. Joakim "disco doplan" Gidetun from Epsilon Esports was pyth's initial substitute at the beginning of ESL Pro League, but the role was later filled by Maikelele.

Maikelele played with NiP in 2014 and 2015 before being benched by the team, subsequently heading to LGB eSports a month later. NiP recently placed first at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 in September with Maikelele on board.
