For the second time in his career, Chris McCullough will have to fight his way back.
The 27-year-old former San Miguel import tore his left anterior cruciate ligament last Tuesday during New Taipei’s game against Taoyuan in the 2021-22 P.League+ tournament held at Taoyuan Arena.
With 1:48 left in the first half, the 6-foot-10 big man out of New York went for a fastbreak attempt. As he soared for a finish, McCullough was not able to lift off.
McCullough clutched his left knee as he was stretchered out of the arena.
A day later, the Kings announced that McCullough blew his ACL.
This is the second time McCullough suffered an ACL tear.
During his freshman year in Syracuse, he tore his right ACL in January of 2015.
McCullough ended up playing just seven games for the Kings, norming 20.86 points, 8.57 rebounds, and 1.14 blocks per contest.
It takes six to eight months to fully recover from this type of injury.
