Rain or Shine guard Paul Lee has been given a month by a team doctor to fully recover from a knee injury he sustained prior to the start of the 41st PBA Season late last month, or face the possibility of having a surgery.
That is what Lee disclosed after his check up last Thursday with Dr. Edgar Eufemio, the one who administered the Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP procedure to repair a partial tear on the lateral meniscus and ITB (Iliotibial Band) tendon on his left knee.
“If ever, after one month, there is still pain it’s possible for me to have a surgery,” said Lee when contacted by The Bulletin yesterday. “Hopefully it heals and the PRP will be a success so there won’t be a surgery.”
The 6-foot guard said there is progress after the PRP as he feels less pain whenever he does several exercises during therapy sessions. Lee said he will have additional workouts to improve his knee and his playing condition.
Lee has already missed four games in the ongoing Smart Bro Philippine Cup and the Elasto Painters had a 3-0 start before losing to Globalport Batang Pier, 111-113, last Friday at the Philsports Arena (formerly ULTRA) in Pasig City. (Waylon Galvez)
