JERON Teng sustained a knee injury on Wednesday night while battling Justin Chua for the loose ball during the final seconds of Alaska’s match against Phoenix Pulse in the PBA Governors’ Cup.
The wild scramble for the ball led to Chua rolling into Teng’s right knee.
Alaska team doctor Facundo Sun said the team staff suspects a hyperextended knee, but the full extent of the injury is still undetermined. Teng immediately went to the hospital after the game to get his knee checked.
Teng already missed a few games with the Aces at the start of the conference due to a hamstring injury. The former La Salle star is averaging 15.0 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists in five games this conference.
Alaska coach Jeff Cariaso is hoping for the best.
“I hope he is good. I’m not sure. His reaction when he sat down on the bench was hitting the chair next to him. It doesn’t seem like it’s good. Ibig sabihin, meron siyang nararamdaman. We are hoping for the best,” said Cariaso.
“We are hoping that it’s just a hyperextended knee or something. We are hoping that it’s nothing bad where he has to sit out for a while. We are praying for him,” he added.
