AJ Edu suffers torn meniscus; Kai Sotto set to go to Yokohama


Two of the country’s premier big men are headed down different paths in the B.League.

AJ Edu will be sidelined for a while with Toyama, while Kai Sotto will be on loan from Hiroshima to Yokohama.

Edu, the 6-foot-10 Fil-Nigerian, suffered a torn meniscus, as announced by the Grouses earlier this month.

The 23-year-old product of the University of Toledo sustained the injury on November 12 during the Grouses’ game against the Utsunomiya Brex.

Edu has already undergone surgery and will be out for at least three months.

In 14 games played, Edu averaged 13.1 points and 8.9 rebounds per game.

The Grouses currently hold a 3-21 record for the season.

Meanwhile, Sotto has yet to play a game for the Dragonflies.

The 7-foot-3 big man has been nursing an injured herniated lumbar disc, which he played through during the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023.

He averaged 8.92 points, 4.17 rebounds, and 1.29 blocks per game last season.

Sotto is currently clearing medical protocols so that he can complete his transfer to the B-Corsairs.
