Technical support issues
Gomez has a hiatus due to back muscle pain. On October 27, the 2023-2024 Jeonggwanjang Professional Basketball League away game against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis was the most recent game. Gomez averaged 0.8 (success rate 33.3%) 3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals in 18 minutes and 5 seconds in four games before leaving with an injury.
Gomez, who has gradually improved his condition through rest and rehabilitation, is ready to play in the real game. He will play in the D-League against Hyundai Mobis at LG Champions Park in Icheon on the 5th to check his performance.
Coach Jeon Hee-chul said of Gomez, "My physical condition has improved. It will be played for 20 to 25 minutes in the D-League game. "If there is no problem, I think I will be able to accompany the team from the first-team match against Hyundai Mobis on the 7th," he said.
SK, which started the second round with four consecutive wins, was in crisis after losing three consecutive games, but changed the atmosphere by beating Anyang Jeonggwanjang 85-71 on the 3rd. Since there is no game for three days before the game against Hyundai Mobis on the 7th, it can also reduce the accumulation of fatigue caused by playing back-to-back games.
The crisis starts with the game against Wonju DB on the 12th. Starting with this game, SK will play as many as 14 games in 30 days until the game against Busan KCC on January 11, 2024. Among them was the EASL (East Asian Super League) away game. SK will face off against Meralko Boltz in the Philippines on the 27th.
As it is a forced force, the addition of resources that can ease the physical burden on the main players is a factor that can give SK a great boost. If Gomez shows that there is no abnormality through the D-League, SK is expected to continue the race by using a wider range of players.
