The man who was critically injured in a shooting last month is still in hospital, a court has heard.
Harry Boyle, from Lawrence Hill, was due to appear before the Crown Court earlier this week, where he faces a number of drug offences.
However, defence counsel Mark Reel said his client may not be released from hospital before the summer.
He added that it could be September before the 25-year-old could appear in court.
The case was adjourned for four weeks for medical reports to be produced.
Boyle was shot twice in the leg on April 18th..
