The 27-year-old Alas sustained an ACL tear in his right knee on February 2, the exact same injury on the same knee he suffered last year.
Alas is determined to power through his latest setback and he will especially with a strong support system led by his family and longtime girlfriend and courtside reporter Selina Dagdag.
“We’re about to embark on this round 2 with lots of hope and positivity! Please keep @kevinlouiealas in your prayers always. We know God’s plans are the best!” Dagdag posted on her Instagram account.
“He’s okay. He’s already in high spirit,” said his father Louie Alas.
The former Letran star went down just five games into the 2019 Philippine Cup where he was averaging 8.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.6 assists before the injury.
Alas was sidelined for 10 months when he tore his ACL the first time.
