Literally, it is a ‘blue sky wall’.
Jeonju KCC ace Heo Ung suffered a right ankle injury in the middle of the second quarter in the home game against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis in the 2022-23 SKT Adot Professional Basketball Round 5 held at Jeonju Indoor Gymnasium on the 9th.
Heo Ung attempted a shot after breaking through, and then his right ankle turned greatly in the process of landing. He was in great pain immediately after his injury and was eventually carried out on a stretcher.
Heo Woong underwent a detailed examination at a hospital in Seoul at 9 am on the 10th. The result was an 8-week diagnosis of lateral ligament rupture in the right ankle. 스포츠토토
A KCC official said, “It is said that the lateral ligament of the right ankle was torn during the landing process. He doesn’t have to do surgery, but he has an 8-week diagnosis,” he said.
As a result, KCC, which left Lee Seung-hyun (elbow) and Heo Woong, put a red flag on the competition for the semifinals. Currently, KCC is in 6th place, ahead of Suwon kt, who is in 7th place by a 0.5 game difference. Ace’s absence seems to be a big problem in digesting the remaining schedule.
Meanwhile, Heo Woong has suffered from an ankle injury for a long time in the past. In particular, it was difficult to find a normal condition due to injury trauma. It is a situation where you have to worry about the aftermath not just this season, but next season as well.
