    KEVIN Alas was dealt yet another blow in his young PBA career after suffering an ACL tear on the same knee he injured last season.

    SPIN.ph learned about the sad development on Monday afternoon, two days after the NLEX guard underwent an MRI at the Delos Santos hospital following the Road Warriors' 87-83 win over the Meralco Bolts in the PBA Philippine Cup.

    The second pick overall in the 2014 PBA draft out of Letran first tore the ACL on his right knee last March, forcing him to sit out the rest of the 2018 season.

    Alas, 27, was five games into his comeback when he landed awkwardly after a battle for a rebound against Meralco big man Cliff Hodge and fell to the floor, immediately clutching his knee.

      Ironically, the son of Phoenix coach Louie Alas suffered both injuries at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City.

      NLEX management later issued a statement regarding the sad development.
