Heo Ung (30) of Jeonju KCC, a professional basketball player, has been removed from the front line for eight weeks. In the process of landing after a shot attempt, his right ankle was greatly bent, and it was eventually diagnosed that the ligament was torn.
A KCC official said in a phone call with Star News on the 10th, “As a result of Heo Woong’s examination, two ligaments in his right ankle were torn, and it was diagnosed that it would take about eight weeks to recover.”
Heo Woong was injured 7 minutes before the end of the 2nd quarter in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball home game against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis held at Jeonju Gymnasium the day before. In the process of landing after attempting a shot that broke through to the bottom of his goal, his right ankle was severely bent, and he eventually collapsed on the spot and complained of pain.
Heo Woong, who was carried out on a stretcher without being able to walk on his own, received an MRI scan at a hospital in Seoul the next morning and was diagnosed. It is said that his condition is not good enough that the swelling is still severe.
Given that the regular professional basketball league ends on the 29th of next month, it seems unlikely that Heo Woong, who was diagnosed with 8 weeks, will return within the regular season. At least, depending on the speed of recovery, KCC is expected to step on the court at the end of the season, depending on whether or not KCC advances to the playoffs. 바카라
Heo Woong injured his left ankle in 2020 when he was a member of Wonju DB and underwent ankle ligament reconstruction and bone fragment removal surgery in April of that year. And this time, he had to face the “bad news” of a major injury to his right ankle, the other side of him.
Heo Woong left DB ahead of this season and joined KCC to make a fresh start. He plays in averaging 30:06 and is averaging 15.9 points, 4.4 assists and 2.6 rebounds. His team, KCC, is in 6th place with 17 wins and 21 losses.
