THE BIGGER PICTURE: Soon after signing with the Baggies from Orlando City in January 2022, Dike picked up a hamstring injury which saw him miss the final four months of last season. After recovering, he suffered a thigh setback at the beginning of this season which ruled him out for a few months, until he returned to action in November. Since then, Dike has scored seven goals in 22 appearances.
