The injury bug hasn’t let up for the Seoul Samsung. Before the start of the season, Cha Min-seok (22-200 cm) fell victim to the injury trap, followed by Shin Dong-hyuk (23-191.3 cm) and Jo Jun-hee (19-187.2 cm).
Cha suffered a fractured instep last month before the KBL Cup. He was stepped on during team training and was given a six-week diagnosis. “(Cha) was a secret weapon, and it’s unfortunate that he got injured,” Samsung coach Eun Hee-seok said.레모나토토 도메인
Shin Dong-hyuk was treated earlier this month for a small tissue injury in his calf. Without their main swingman on offense, Samsung has been struggling.
Even rookie Jo Joon-hee, who was called into action earlier than expected due to Shin Dong-hyuk’s departure, suffered an injury. He injured the medial ligament in his ankle in an away game against DB on July 7. Jo Jun-hee returned to the field with the team in a cast for the away game against Hyundai Mobis on the 9th.
Coach Eun tried to focus on Jo Jun-hee’s defensive weaknesses, but he was forced to withdraw him from the squad. “We have too many injuries,” Eun said. We had a hard time with injuries last season, so we paid attention to recovery training after training and paid more attention to injury prevention, but when I see injuries, I don’t know why,” he said.
Samsung, which has been plagued by a string of injuries, also lost to Hyundai Mobis on the 9th of this month.
