Russel Escoto remains fearless despite left knee injury


Russel Escoto is going through one of the toughest times in his PBA rookie year, but he’s doing so with strength and positivity.

The Mahindra Floodbuster rookie hurt his knee after a bad fall late in the first half of their game against NLEX on Friday. The Gilas Pilipinas pool member’s left knee buckled as he fell down after a rebound against Road Warriors center Fonso Gotladera.

It’s the same knee which the former FEU forward hurt his ACL, forcing him to miss UAAP Season 76 back in 2013.

Get well soon!
