Chen Rudy Fernández fell to the ground chasing a ball in the semifinal of the Endesa Super Cup against Lenovo Tenerife, all the alarms went off. His knee was gone and he lay on the ground holding his legs with gestures of pain. However, the tests he underwent this Monday when landing from Tenerife have confirmed what both the player and Pablo Laso had anticipated, which was nothing serious.
Rudy suffers a slight sprain of the medial lateral ligament in his left knee. What seemed like a serious injury is left in a fright, as the forward had to leave the floor without support and helped by two members of the Madrid medical team. Later, during the game, he could be seen with his knee covered in ice and a bulky bandage to reduce inflammation.
After this good news, the Madrid player will put himself in the hands of the team’s physiotherapists and will be able to return to activity in a short space of time, although it will be his evolution and his feelings that mark his availability.
Next weekend the Endesa League begins, in which Madrid will debut on Sunday against Hereda San Pablo Burgos at the WiZink Center. Then he will face two days in the following week, on Friday visiting MoraBanc Andorra and on Sunday receiving Monbus Obradoiro.
