SMB player Ross suffered an unanticipated injury all while constantly playing and simply giving his all for the team’s victory. He sincerely wants to contribute his best and complete efforts to SMB.
San Miguel is clutching its own breathing just after Chris Ross suffered serious right knee injury in the second period of San Miguel’s PBA Season 47 Philippine Cup game against all of Magnolia on Thursday evening.
Ross really was seriously hurt at the 2:57 mark of the second quarter when he went off for a layup to reasonably conclude a fastbreak. The All-Defensive Team member never really completely finished the shoot as he collapsed to the ground in absolute agony.
Chris Ross is probably wishing at all for the best also while fully prepared for the worst.
He remained completely out there for some short minutes, basically holding off on his own right knee, while just SMB personnel involved actually attended to him. With his frightened biological mother on his own side, he still was eventually escorted to the Beermen’s bench well before proceeding to the dugout.
As he also sat in the chair in the dugout, such a clearly angry Ross hurled an entire bottle of mineral water out of full fury.
The organization explicitly stated that there is still probably currently no prognosis at all for the serious injury, but once again fears were alleviated when Ross returned to the SMB bench in the fourth quarter.
“Ayaw pa niya ipahawak,” [He still refuses to touch it] remarked Gee Abanilla, team manager for San Miguel.
Prior to Ross, SMB forward Vic Manuel exited the game along with an unspecified major injury. He still never came back.
Basketball knee injury 101
Here are some 6 injuries to avoid for basketball players.
It’s critical to understand the risks of basketball, whether you’re a player, a coach, or a parent. Basketball does not have as many injuries as other team sports like football or soccer, but basketball players are more susceptible to certain injuries.
Basketball knee injuries are the most dangerous. 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.
Patellar tendonitis, also known as “jumper’s knee,” is a painful inflammation of the tendon that connects the kneecap to the shinbone. Many of the high-impact motions that are essential to the game of basketball are supported by this tendon (such as jumping, running, and shock absorption). A tear of the patellar tendon can occur if inflammation and tendon degeneration are not addressed.
Knee Ligament Sprains
Sprains of the knee are the third most prevalent reason for basketball players missing games, according to injury statistics. The ligaments that link the bones of the knee are stretched and damaged in this form of basketball knee injury. Sprains are most commonly caused by direct trauma or ligament injury caused by overuse.
Knee Tendon Strains
Strains of the knee, like sprains, are prevalent among basketball players. Strains include stretching damage to the tendons of the knee, which connect bones to the related muscle of the knee, whereas sprains impact the ligaments of the knee.
ACL tears are among the most common catastrophic orthopedic injuries suffered by athletes, especially basketball players. A sprain or tear of the ACL, which connects and stabilizes the bones of the knee joint, can occur. Sudden stops, inaccurate jumping lands, or fast changes of direction during basketball play are common causes of these injuries.
The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) links and stabilizes the bones of the knee joint, just as the ACL. These injuries are less prevalent than ACL sprains and usually originate from a hit to the front of the knee or by twisting and hyperextension. Nonetheless, they are a common hazard for basketball players.
The meniscus is a wide piece of cartilage that separates the thigh and shin bones in the knee joint and absorbs shock. Sprains or tears of the meniscal cartilage can occur as a result of severe twists of the knee during basketball action, similar to PCL injuries.
Basketball knee injury prevention begins with awareness; athletes who are aware of the hazards involved with their sport and the steps they may take to mitigate those risks are considerably less likely to sustain injuries. Rothman Orthopedic Institute has vast experience treating basketball knee injuries as a Sports Medicine specialist. We’re familiar with injury tendencies among players.
