Technical support issues
Choi Jun-yong was injured.
Busan KCC Egis won 81-75 against Anyang CheongKwanJang Red Boosters in the 2023-2024 CheongKwanJang Professional Basketball Regular League held at Busan Sajik Gymnasium on the 2nd.
KCC swept the series against Jeong Kwan-Jang thanks to Kwak Jeong-Hoon's surprising performance. However, there was also bad news.
Choi Jun-yong was injured during the game and was unable to return to the court. Choi Jun-yong is a key player in KCC's current system.
Coach Jeon Chang-jin said in an interview after the game, "(Choi Jun-yong's condition) needs to be watched. I feel bad because I think it's an area where he was injured in the past."
Choi Jun-yong avoided a long-term injury, but it seems unlikely that he will be able to play for the time being. As the former coach had feared, the adductor muscle, which was injured during the cup competition, was injured again.
A KCC official said, "I injured my right adductor muscle again, which was injured in the past. There was a 2cm partial tear, and it is expected to take about 3 weeks before I can return. Fortunately, it is not as severe as the last time, and we need to take good care of it in the early stages. It is true that it is a sensitive area." He said.
Choi Jun-yong has shown great success one after another in recent games, saving KCC from injuries. However, he had to take an unwanted break due to this injury.
Choi Jun-yong was recently named in the final 12 players for the Asia Cup preliminaries. If the injury prevents him from participating in the Asia Cup qualifiers held at the end of February, it will also be bad news for the men's basketball team facing Australia and Thailand.
