The bad news is that Tom Maayan is currently on crutches recovering from ACL surgery. He tore his ACL while playing last month in the Canary Islands.
“It’s a clean ACL,” Canarias Basketball Academy coach Rob Orellana, whose team is on a tour of the U.S., told SNY.tv Sunday during an exclusive interview at the Monroe College Athletic Complex.
“Everybody’s happy with the way the operation came about. He was operated on beginning of the month [January] and everybody’s positive with the way it’s healing. He’s started a rigorous rehabilitation process now and we hope to see him get on the floor hopefully by May or June.”
