‘Ankle injury’ Heo Woong, 8 weeks until return… PO seems to be able to return

Jeonju KCC Heo Ung will leave the court for eight weeks due to an ankle injury. In fact, it became difficult to return during the regular season.

Heo Woong injured his ankle while participating in a home game against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis in the 5th round of professional basketball in the 2022-23 season held at Jeonju Gymnasium on the 9th. He attempted a drive-in about three minutes into the second quarter, but his right ankle twisted and collapsed in the process of landing. Complaining of pain immediately after his injury, he was carried off the court on a stretcher. 슬롯사이트

An official from the KCC team said on the 10th, “My right ankle turned when I landed in yesterday’s game. After icing in the locker room and the swelling subsided, I had an MRI this morning at a hospital in Seoul.” I was diagnosed the week before. The swelling remains, so I plan to have a re-examination next week.” He fortunately avoided surgery, but the remainder of his regular season schedule was difficult to digest.

Heo Woong also had an ankle injury in 2020. He underwent ankle ligament reconstruction and bone fragmentation surgery for his left ankle injury at the time. Reporter Cha Seung-yoon chasy99@edaily.co.kr

Meanwhile, KCC, which moved most ambitiously in the air conditioning league, swallowed regret. Lee Seung-hyun and Heo Woong, who were considered the biggest players at the time, were recruited at the same time, but both players suffered serious injuries, putting the brakes on the ranking fight. Currently, KCC is in 6th place in the regular season with 17 wins and 21 losses as of the 10th. If you keep 6th place, you can take the last place in the playoffs, but the ride with 7th place Suwon KT is only half a game. It is expected that it will not be easy to secure 6th place without Heo Woong and Lee Seung-hyun. Heo Ung’s comeback seems to be possible only when KCC advances to the playoffs.
