Jeon Gwang-in complained of pain and even carried a stretcher. Jeon Kwang-in got out of the court with support and immediately moved to a designated hospital for a detailed examination.

Hyundai Capital reported the news of Jeon Kwang-in’s injury on the 10th. Hyundai Capital said through the official SNS, “Jeon Kwang-in suffered an anterior scapular ligament and calcaneal ligament rupture injury due to an inverted sprain in his right ankle. He is expected to take three to four weeks to recover,” he announced.

Hyundai Capital lost to KEPCO by a set score of 0-3, making it difficult for Hyundai Capital to take first place in the regular league. In a situation where we have to prepare for the playoffs (PO) in second place, the injury of Jeon Kwang-in, the core and captain of the team, is truly fatal. Men’s PO starts on the 24th and proceeds in a best-of-three-out-of-three format.
