Day-to-day Powell ‘really devastated’ with foot injury, bares Goorjian


Myles Powell is listed as day-to-day after suffering a ‘severe’ foot injury mere days before Bay Area began its PBA Commissioner’s Cup playoff campaign.

Head coach Brian Goorjian bared that his prized guard got hurt during practice and MRI results do not look good, the reason why the guest team brought back Andrew Nicholson a day before its quarterfinal duel with Rain or Shine.

“He went down in practice about three days ago. A pretty severe foot injury. We tried to settle it. He had an MRI yesterday. And the MRI wasn’t good for today,” he said after the Dragons’ semis-clinching 126-96 win Friday.

“We’re gonna keep monitoring his progress. And we’re going to keep working in the rehab and see where it takes us,” added the veteran mentor.

Powell appeared to be Bay Area’s import the rest of the competition after leading his side to a sweep of its last four elimination round games with impressive averages of 38.7 points and 8.75 rebounds.

That, until he got hurt. Still, he made it a point to be with the Dragons in their first playoff game — albeit in a protective boot on his left foot.

Goorjian said that the former NBA cager was ‘really, really devastated’ as the injury came at the worst of times.

“He was really, really devastated because he was so excited, as you all know, to be part of these playoffs,” he said. “And playing in front of these fans and against this competition. So, It’s really a kick in the gut.

“We don’t know at this stage how long it’s gonna take, but it’s day-by-day,” the 69-year-old bench tactician added.
