Professional Basketball KCC, Song Kyo-chang and Choi Jun-yong Injury side by Side, Bad News

Busan KCC, a professional basketball team, faced the unfortunate news of injury to its MVP duo,

Song Kyo-chang and Choi Jun-yong.

KCC lost 69-90 in the game against Seoul SK held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 3rd with Song Kyo-chang absent.

Song Kyo-chang could not play in the game due to toe pain. 바카라사이트

A KCC official explained, “I am experiencing pain in my right big toe,

but it currently looks like it will take more than two weeks.”

Choi Jun-yong played 24 minutes and 57 seconds in the game on the 3rd,

scoring 5 points and 7 rebounds, but due to an injury to his left wrist,

he will not be able to play for the time being.

Choi Jun-yong is expected to be able to return to the court earlier than Song Kyo-chang,

and it is likely that it will take about two weeks.

Song Kyo-chang was the regular league MVP (MVP) in the 2020-2021 season,

and Choi Jun-yong was the regular league MVP in the 2021-2022 season during his SK days.

Song Kyo-chang was scheduled to join the team after completing his military service during the season,

and Choi Jun-yong wore the Busan KCC uniform as a free agent (FA),

so KCC was called a ‘super team’ even before the opening of the 2023-2024 season.

In addition to these, the existing lineup of Heo Woong, Lee Seung-hyun, and La Gun-ah,

as well as new foreign player Alize DeShawn Johnson, formed an ultra-luxurious lineup.

However, KCC is not performing as expected, staying in 5th place with 23 wins and 20 losses.

There is a 3-game gap with 4th place SK (27 wins, 18 losses),

and there is no gap with 6th place Ulsan Hyundai Mobis (24 wins, 21 losses).

Fortunately, they are ahead of 7th place Daegu Korea Gas Corporation (18 wins, 27 losses) by 6 games,

so there is a high possibility that they will advance to the semifinal playoffs despite the absence of Song Kyo-chang and Choi Jun-yong.

Song Kyo-chang and Choi Jun-yong are expected to join the playoffs,

which begin in early April, but it is unclear how much of their skills they will display as they have only just returned from injury.

Choi Jun-yong and Song Kyo-chang’s physical condition is expected to be a variable in whether KCC,

which received a lower-than-expected score in the regular league,

will be able to turn things around in the playoffs.
