Kevin Alas and NLEX just couldn’t catch a break.

Alas, a rising star in the PBA, suffered another ACL injury in his right knee, NLEX announced on its Twitter account Monday.


It was a tough blow for Alas, who had just come back from the first ACL injury he sustained in last year’s Philippine Cup that sidelined him for 10 months.

The 27-year-old Alas hurt his right knee following an awkward landing after he was fouled mid-air by Meralco forward Cliff Hodge in the Road Warriors’ win over the Bolts last Saturday at Ynares Center in Antipolo.

The former Letran standout is averaging 8.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, 4.6 assists and a steal per game through five games for NLEX, which is currently in the middle of the standings with a 2-3 record.


Alas, a fearless competitor, had overcome it before and he’d get through the same hurdle again.
