Heo Woong (30), the ace of Jeonju KCC, was diagnosed with an ankle ligament rupture for eight weeks. Dark clouds hung over KCC, which was busy on its way.
Heo Woong played in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league home game against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis held at Jeonju Gymnasium on the 9th.
In the second quarter, Heo Woong broke his right ankle in the process of landing after attempting a layup shot, and complained of excruciating pain. Heo Woong, who could not get up on his own, eventually left the court on a stretcher.
Heo Woong received a detailed diagnosis at the hospital on the 10th and was diagnosed with two ruptured lateral ligaments in his right ankle. He fortunately avoided surgery, but it will be 8 weeks before his return.
Heo Woong, who signed a free agent contract with KCC after the end of last season, is leading the team with an average of 15.9 points and 4.4 assists this season. 온라인바카라
However, a bad news for his injury made his comeback within the season uncertain. The regular season ends on March 29th. Even if KCC succeeds in advancing to spring basketball as well as in the regular league, it is unclear whether Heo Woong will return.
Following Lee Seung-hyun, who recently left KCC due to an elbow injury, Heo Ung was also excluded from the team. The 6th place (17 wins, 21 losses), the final line for advancing to the playoffs, is at stake. It is 1.5 games away from 7th place Suwon KT (17-22) and 0.5 rides, and 8th place Wonju DB (16-23).
