Choi Jun-yong of professional basketball Seoul SK, who left due to injury, is unlikely to be able to play in the championship match.
SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol met with reporters ahead of the home game of the 2022-2023 SKT A-dot professional basketball quarterfinal playoff (Best of 5) against Changwon LG held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul on the 18th and said that Choi Jun-yong would not be able to play even if he reached the championship match. He said it was highly probable.
Coach Jeon said, “I don’t think Choi Joon-yong will be able to play. Even the championship match is difficult.”
Choi Jun-yong, the MVP of the regular league last season, injured his left heel while blocking Murphy Holloway’s shot at the end of the game against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation on February 11 of this year.
Since then, he has been working hard on rehabilitation with the goal of participating in the playoffs, but his return is getting longer.
It was initially expected to play in the PO of the semifinals, but as the recovery was delayed, the possibility that SK would not be able to play even if it reached the championship match became very high.
Coach Jeon said, “Even if I come in now, I don’t think I’ll be able to help the team, but I’m not feeling well. If it was 20% before, now it’s 50-60%, but I can’t get over it. there is,” he added.
Meanwhile, SK, who won the first and second rounds of the playoffs against LG, will advance to the championship match for two consecutive seasons if they win on this day. 안전놀이터
