University of the East head coach Derrick Pumaren is usually a spryly man walking around the sideline with vigor and intensity that can match up to his players.

Yet for some time Pumaren has been saddled with a cast wrapped around his right leg during the Red Warriors’ stint in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Premier Cup.

Pumaren on Wednesday said he dislocated his right patella when he accidentally bumped his leg while walking in his home.


“The bone went through the other side of the leg, and I thought my skin would be punctured,” said Pumaren after UE beat Letran 81-77 at Filoil Flying V Centre. “I’m starting with my rehab now.”

Pumaren said he’s limited with his movement and the most he can do is limp when he’s walking.

“It takes time to stand up, but it’s still pretty hard to do it,” said Pumaren. “But I have to do my job.”

Despite the pain, Pumaren can’t help but joke around with his situation.

“I can’t play one-on-one with my players now,” joked Pumaren. “Hopefully in two weeks’ time I’ll be up and driving.”
