Gage Prim (Hyundai Mobis) will not be able to complete the training camp. He will return to South Korea for a medical examination following a minor injury.
The Ulsan Hyundai Mobis have been training in Kawasaki, Japan since the 21st. The team is improving its performance through tactical training and practice games, and is scheduled to return home on October 2.
Prim, a second-year foreign player, will return to Korea first. He suffered a minor foot injury during a recent practice game. He will be traveling to South Korea on the 29th to undergo a medical examination.
The exact diagnosis will only be known after the examination, but it does not appear to be a serious injury. He missed the team’s scrimmage against Tokyo Z on the 27th, but has been working on his condition in individual practice, including shooting practice whenever he can.
Coach Cho Dong-hyun said of Prim, “He’s got a lot of greed and passion. He’s the type of player who tries to play through a little bit of pain, so I thought it would be better for him to go back to Korea than to stay here. The season is important. I think it would be good to get my body healthy and start playing in cup competitions.”
Prim played in all 54 games last season, averaging 18.7 points, 10.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.4 steals in 27.18 minutes. His fighting spirit kept Hyundai Mobis in the game, and his offensive rating (1846.56) was second overall behind only Jamil Warney (SK, 2083.98).카지노사이트
However, foul trouble and technical fouls due to over-competitiveness were cited as areas for improvement. Prime led the league in total fouls (160) and technical fouls (8) last season. He also had the most unnecessary ejections (8).
When asked what he expects from Prim, Cho Dong-hyun said, “(After a pause), I hope he doesn’t get technical fouls because it’s his second year, so I’ll be careful about that because it can change the atmosphere of the game.” “I’d like to see him move better off the ball, but for now, we’re going to focus on playing to his strengths,” he added.
