MANILA, Philippines—PLDT will have to make do with a shorthanded lineup for the rest of the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Invitational Conference after losing Jovy Prado due to a crucial knee injury.

Prado landed awkwardly and tweaked his left knee during the High Speed ​​Hitters’ loss to the Creamline Cool Smashers last week.

PLDT on Tuesday night revealed that her landing had resulted in an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear, which will keep her sidelined for the foreseeable future or “until the end of the conference.”

“After an MRI scan and a check-up with a doctor, it was confirmed to Jovy Prado and the PLDT High Speed ​​Hitters team and management that she suffered an ACL tear following a bad landing during our game versus the Cool Smashers on Tuesday ,” said PLDT in a statement on Tuesday.

PLDT dedicated its upcoming games to Prado. The High Speed ​​Hitters are currently battling Chery Tiggo for a spot in the semis as of posting time.

“To our girl, Jovy Prado, the next games of the team are for you! #WithPrideForPrado.”

Prado had nine points before the injury and was needed to be stretched out.
