Jeonju KCC, which has a high possibility of advancing to the playoffs (PO), decided not to rush the return of ace Heoung (30).
KCC will face off against Anyang KGC in the 6th round of the 2022-23 professional basketball regular league held at Anyang Gymnasium on the 20th. 스포츠토토
KCC is currently in 6th place in the regular season. Victory is not urgent in the remaining game schedule. 5th place Goyang Carrot and Ride-on, 7th place Wonju DB and Suwon KT also have 3 rides. In the remaining four games, it is unlikely to turn upside down or upside down.
That’s why I’m not in a hurry with Heoung’s comeback. Heo Woong has not yet returned to the court after injuring his ankle in the game against Hyundai Mobis in Ulsan on the 9th of last month. If he returns, he will be a thousand horses, but there is no reason to rush as PO is more important than winning the regular league. In an interview before the match on the 20th, KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin said, “Woong’s feet swell a little after practicing. I think the PO will be almost confirmed even if I win just one game. So, I will put it in against Seoul SK on the 24th.”
When Heo Woong returns, KCC makes him do his best in the PO after digesting the rest of the regular season. Coach Jeon Chang-jin said, “Heo Woong put in about 15 points per game. With Woong missing, the score is bound to be regrettable. Since we couldn’t score more than 80 points, we had to block the opponent within 70 points, but there was a weakness in our defense.”
On the other hand, Anyang KGC will play the game without Darryl Monroe, a 2-option foreign player. Monroe missed the Changwon LG game on the 16th due to calf pain. Four days passed and he did not return to the court this time either. Kim Sang-shik, coach of KGC, said, “Monroe does weight training and strengthening exercises. However, when she judges herself, running and intense exercise are difficult. He says he will be able to appear in the next match against Hyundai Mobis or the next DB match.” “If a player is in pain, the coach really has nothing to say,” he said with regret.
Manager Kim said, “It seems that the calf got hit somewhere. It was bruised. It is said that it hurts when running. It is getting longer, but since the player is older, the recovery seems to be a little slower.” is injured again. But it is a situation that can not be managed now.”
Monroe’s vacancy eventually forced Omari Spellman to play close to full-time. Coach Kim said, “I tried to give Spellman a one-minute break every quarter, but then he said, ‘I won’t die just because I run more.’ I know this is an important time.” He then added, “I’m going to drive the opposing team fast so that the players have a little time to rest in the middle.”
