Bosnian import Edina Selimovic sustained a hamstring injury that abruptly ended her stint for Pocari Sweat.
Pocari Sweat will have to play the rest of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference sans Bosnian import Edina Selimovic because a right hamstring tear.
Team manager Eric Ty broke the news via Twitter.
Ty said that the middle blocker has been nursing some pain in her hamstring since April and aggravated the injury during the Lady Warriors' five-set win against BaliPure last May 18 in Selimovic's debut after a long wait for the release of all the PVL imports' International Transfer Certificates.
Selimovic was able to play through pain in Pocari Sweat's four-set loss against Creamline last Saturday that snapped the Lady Warriors' six-game winning run. She averaged 19.5 points including 0.33 kill blocks per set in her two outings.
Aside from the foreign guest player, Pocari Sweat could also miss the services of top hitter Myla Pablo. The National University product aggravated a lingering back spasm midway in the second set of their match against BaliPure.
Ty said in another Twitter post that the 23-year-old hitter, "may also miss the entire season."
The Lady Warriors parade a 6-3 win-loss record and are a win away from clinching an outright semis berth.
Pocari Sweat will close the preliminary round against Philippine Air Force on Thursday.
