Towering National U open hitter Bryan Bagunas was unavailable for his team’s straight-set win over the University of the Philippines Maroons last Saturday.
According to NU’s head athletic trainer Luis De Mesa, Bagunas hyperextended his left knee during practice earlier this week during practice.
“Rereceive ng bola si Ricky (Marcos), naatrasan niya si Bryan. Sakto sa tuhod,” recalled De Mesa.
Bagunas was previously playing with shin splints on the same leg and had just recovered prior the incident.
The Batagueño, Bagunas, will need at least two weeks to recover but Puno is hopeful Bagunas will be able to play against the University of Santo Tomas Tigers on March 30 after the Holy Week break.
“Sobrang malas ko nga po talaga,” said Bagunas who had played through a malady of injuries throughout his two-year career. “Mag-strengthening na lang po ako ngayong Holy Week.”
Bagunas broke his right hand last season and had to sit out NU’s Final Four run.
