ISA Molde was diagnosed with a minor ankle sprain and is expected to miss only one match in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament.
The Lady Maroons’ physician said in a report in the team’s official website upwvt.com on Sunday morning that Molde was cleared of knee and ankle fracture. The injury is also not considered a high ankle sprain.
The outside hitter, however, will still likely sit out on Wednesday’s game against University of the East at the Arena in San Juan.
Molde suffered the injury early in the second set of UP’s three-set loss to Ateneo on Saturday, falling awkwardly after an attack attempt over Mirgie Bautista.
“It is just a simple ankle sprain. She will be up and around within no time,” said UP coach Godfrey Okumu. “She will be ready most probably by the weekend, but we cannot say, because it depends on her response to the PT.”
