Ateneo's Ravena Out With Ankle Sprain

After missing Sunday's game against rivals the De La Salle Green Archers, Ateneo star guard Kiefer Ravena
is out for at least two weeks with an ankle sprain.
Coach Bo Pearsol said Ravena is "still recovering from a severe ankle sprain and is listed as day to day."
Ravena did not play in last Wednesday's game against the Far Eastern University, which the Tamaraws won, 79-75 in overtime. It was the first time in his UAAP basketball career he missed a game.
Ravena's doctor, Randy Molo told's Snow Badua the Blue Eagle's most prized player suffered a Grade 3 ankle sprain. The following quote has a lot of Filipino jargon, but you'll get the gist of it! "The most severe kind yung (ankle) injury niya. It's a recoverable injury kaya lang time frame wise it will take a bit longer than a Grade 1 type (of sprain)," Molo said.
Typically the injury takes four weeks to heal, but since Ravena will be on his second week of the injury on Sunday, the 19 year old amateur basketball player will have just two weeks left in his recovery.
Molo compared this injury to that of San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker, who had a similar injury. Parker was out of the NBA for four weeks.
Pearsol said Ravena is listed as "day-to-day" because of the sprain. Molo added, "When somebody's status is day-to-day, anything goes. Meaning, he can come back this day or he can come back at a later date."
