Jeonju KCC’s competition for the 6th round was a red flag.
Lee Seung-hyun, an irreplaceable member of KCC, is taking a break due to a right elbow injury.
Lee Seung-hyun broke his right elbow during a physical fight with Lee Dae-heon in a match against Korea Gas Corporation in Daegu on the 24th. The situation was so bad that even KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin showed concern.
In the end, Lee Seung-hyun was diagnosed with a ligament rupture in his right elbow for 4 weeks. According to the KCC side, “If he was a baseball player, he is said to be an injury that requires surgery. He is a right elbow that is fortunately not used well among misfortunes, and since he is a basketball player, he seems to have to watch the situation for now.”
Lee Seung-hyun is an irreplaceable being. He is the best forward in KBL, even in teams other than KCC. He is averaging 10.5 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 33 minutes and 12 seconds in 34 appearances in the 2022-23 season. The average playing time is second overall after Lee Jung-hyun (Carrot).
Due to Lee Seung-hyun’s injury, KCC’s power behind the goal has a big hole. The fact that he played for a long time means that there is no substitute for him. Kim Sang-kyu and Seo Jeong-hyun should fill in, but it is difficult to replace Lee Seung-hyun’s presence 100%.
However, because Lee Seung-hyun, there is a prospect that he will return faster than 4 weeks. Looking at the KCC as well as the KBL as a whole, it is difficult to find a player as responsible as Lee Seung-hyun. This can be seen from the fact that he also played in the 4th quarter after injuring his right elbow against Korea Gas Corporation.
However, Lee’s absence is a fatal blow for KCC, which desperately needs a win right now. In particular, the situation is not good as they are experiencing a sudden decline in the second half and are facing matches against Wonju DB and Suwon kt, who are competing for the 6th round during Lee Seung-hyun’s injury period.
KCC, despite aggressively recruiting Lee Seung-hyun and Heo Woong this summer, is showing results below expectations. At this point, with Lee Seung-hyun’s injury overlapping, they are in danger of becoming more and more distant from spring basketball. 메이저놀이터
