Kevin Alas re-tears ACL

For 321 days, Kevin Alas worked to regain his form.

But on the 322nd day of his road to recovery, disaster struck.

The results of Alas’ MRI have shown that the 6-foot guard out of Letran has torn his right anterior cruciate ligament anew.

Multiple officials and coaches confirmed the development to Tiebreaker Times.

Back on March 18, 2018, Alas only played 40 seconds in the NLEX Road Warriors’ Philippine Cup semifinals Game 5 clash against Magnolia at the Ynares Sports Center after tearing his right ACL.

Just last Saturday, and in the same venue, Alas suddenly dropped during a defensive sequence against Anjo Caram during NLEX’s tilt against Meralco. The injury occurred with 2:57 left in the contest.

“Yes, may pain, pero pagbalik ko naman from rehab medyo may pain pa naman, so I think that’s normal,” shared the 27-year-old after the game, trying to downplay the pain he was in.

He was immediately rushed to the Delos Santos medical facility for testing. Early Monday, he was sent to renowned orthopedic surgeon Raul Canlas.

Alas, who averaged 8.4 points, 4.6 assists, and 3.4 rebounds per game this conference, might be out for another eight to 12 months for recovery.
