Tigressess’ Tunay slowly easing in after injury
After suffering a nasal fracture early in August, Carmela Tunay is slowly coming into form and trying to get herself back on the team.
Tunay said Sunday that she’s trying to train by herself but cannot push herself too much in fear of aggravating the injury.
“I’m only good to train,” Tunay said at San Juan Arena where UST escaped Arellano in Shakey’s V-League. “But I can’t still play too much with the ball.”
Tunay, who had surgery on August 3 to fix her broken nose which she injured during one of the Tigresses’ game, tried to play with a volleyball but felt pain on her nose when the ball bounced off her hand.
A bleeding occurred on Thursday which prompted Tunay to slow it down and rest.
“Minimum is two weeks and I’ll think I’ll be back,” Tunay said.
Golden Tigresses head coach Kung Fu Reyes said they are still reeling with Tunay’s absence especially with the veteran’s innate leadership.
He added Tunay has to be fitted with a mask for her to be allowed to play.
