Team management told InterAKTV that Ababou is feared to have torn his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during the play.
In an interview with AKTV’s Erika Padilla, Ababou said he felt his knee pop during a drive to the basket. The former University of Santo Tomas forward said he had been favoring his other leg, which had been hampered by a hamstring injury, putting more strain on his right leg.
Ababou was scheduled to be brought to St. Luke’s Hospital.
He joins a list of hurting Ginebra players, which already includes Kerby Raymundo, Allein Maliksi, and Jayjay Helterbrand.
Raymundo is reportedly in the hospital suffering from flu while Maliksi is nursing an injured ankle.
Helterbrand, on the other hand, is recovering from a hamstring injury, but was in uniform against San Mig Coffee.
