MANILA, Philippines—University of Santo Tomas’ Milena Alessandrini is expected to miss at least two weeks due to a left knee injury she suffered two days ago.

Golden Tigresses assistant coach Yani Fernandez said it’s still hard to be precise regarding Alessandrini’s timetable since she still has to undergo therapy and that procedure would ultimately dictate how much time she’ll miss on the floor.

Alessandrini’s MRI results showed a partial tear on the anterior cruciate ligament, a Grade 3 sprain of the medial collateral ligament and the lateral collateral ligament knee.

“If everything’s stable, she can continue to play with a knee support, if not she would need an operation,” said Fernandez.

Alessandrini, the Rookie of the Year in Season 80, injured her left knee after an awkward landing in the second set against the Lady Tamaraws.

This was Alessandrini’s second major injury in just two seasons after she hurt her right shoulder last year that caused her to miss five games.
