Low Ki spent Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and yesterday undergoing a battery of tests to get a full snapshot of the damage done to his knee during the Opera Cup Finals.
While the holidays were not so great for the “Lone Wolf of Brooklyn,” Dr. Sweglar’s team did offer up a gift that has put the former World Champion in better spirits: a diagnosis with a good outlook.
Low Ki suffered a grade 1 knee sprain. The prognosis is that with rest and physical therapy, he will be cleared to compete by mid January.
“I expect a full recovery,” said Dr. Sweglar. “MCL and LCL sprains tend to heal quite well. We expect to clear Low Ki in around 21 days or so.”
