Chris Ross Fitted With Walking Boot as SMB Waits for Knee Test Results

Jun 25, 2022

Players suffered significant injuries in San Miguel’s PBA Philippine Cup game versus Magnolia, and Fil-Am player CHRIS ROSS has been placed with a walking boot pending the findings of an MRI examination on his injured right knee. According to team physical therapist Edward Bacason, the veteran San Miguel Beer guard will have to walk with a knee brace until an official medical report is available. “He can walk on his own,” Bacason said on Sunday, “but we’re keeping him immobilized until we get the (MRI) results.” Ross injured his knee while driving the basket late in the second quarter of San Miguel’s PBA Philippine Cup match against Magnolia at the Ynares Center in Antipolo on Friday. Ross stated he was on his way up for a lay-up when he “felt something.” He claims that he did not hear a pop yet the player braces himself for the worst. Basketball players frequently sustain knee problems. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), meniscus, and patella tendon are the three most frequent knee ailments. Basketball players suffer from injuries due to stress and overuse as a result of the intense, repetitive jumping actions that are a necessary aspect of the sport. Rapid movements and hard court surfaces, on the other hand, increase the risk of traumatic knee injuries from slips, trips, and falls. On his journey to the bench and eventually, into the San Miguel dugout, the Fil-Am athlete needed assistance from his teammates to walk properly. Ross returned to the bench to watch the game from the San Miguel bench, his wounded leg wrapped in ice. Despite being helped on his way to the bench by his teammates, Ross stuck with the Beermen until the final buzzer.  Following the game, which the Beermen won with a score of 87 to 81, Ross was brought to the hospital for his MRI test. Meanwhile, another player, Vic Manuel, has a strained calf and is being monitored. “Nagta-tight yung calf niya kaya di na siya pinabalik ulit sa game,” said Bacason. [“His calf is tightening so he was not sent back to the game,” said Bacason.] When the muscles in the back of the lower leg are overstretched, it results in a strained calf muscle. This injury, often known as calf muscle strains, can result in minor overstretching or full muscular tears. Rest, ice, compression, and elevation are commonly used to treat minor injuries. A calf muscle tear may necessitate surgery.
