Celine Domingo is doubtful to see action for the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws in Game 2 of the Finals.
Far Eastern University could be looking at a bigger problem as the Lady Tamaraws look to survive in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference Finals.
Ace middle Celine Domingo is doubtful to see action in the pivotal Game 2 of the best-of-three championship series after going down with a right knee injury.
Domingo suffered her injury early in the fifth set of FEU’s 25-14, 25-22, 24-26, 18-25, 5-15, series opening loss Sunday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Game 2 of the series is on Wednesday.
“Wala namang major (injury) si Celine sa knee. Kaya lang, may tinatawag Plica Syndrome na meron siya which is caused by overuse,” said Lady Tams physical therapist Marilou Regidor. “Kailangan siyang i-rest and mag-heal.”
Domingo was in pain when she was pulled out of the game and FEU lost a vital cog at the net as the Lady Maroons capitalized to complete a come-from-behind win.
“Napaluhod kasi siya kanina kaya doon nag-trigger 'yung pain. With due rest, makaka-recover naman siya,” said Regidor.
Domingo, who scored 16 points, will undergo further tests Monday.
“Depende tomorrow after ko siya i-test. Depende sa functionality niya sa training,” said Regidor.
“Pero, magfo-follow up pa rin kami sa doctor. Napa-MRI na namin siya. Wala namang major tear. Meron siyang patellar tendonitis, pero na-ma-manange naman naming,” she added. “This time kasi hindi na siya pamamaga. May something inside her knee na nagko-cause ng pain.”
