Lee Won-seok (206cm, C) returned to the court after 28 days.

Seoul Samsung lost 66-89 against Korea Gas Corporation in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular league game held at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium on the 18th.

With this defeat, 먹튀검증 Samsung stayed at the bottom with a record of 12 wins and 30 losses.

Samsung succeeded in escaping its 13th consecutive defeat by winning a dramatic 73-70 match against Suwon KT on the 2nd. Although they escaped the losing streak, it was difficult for Samsung to have a normal team due to line injuries of domestic players.

Among the injured players was Lee Won-seok, who is in his second year as a pro. Lee Won-seok suffered a calf muscle rupture injury in a match against Anyang KGC on January 22 and was diagnosed for 3 weeks. Lee Won-seok had a long-term absence due to a right ankle injury even before Seoul SK on December 3 last year, so his physical condition was not perfect.

Three weeks after his injury, Lee Won-seok prepared for his comeback. Samsung coach Eun Hee-seok said, “(Lee) Won-seok has his will, but the diagnosis takes more than three weeks. Basketball requires a lot of activity. The condition of the leg is deteriorating. I was also sad that a mercenary went out with 5 fouls during the SK match, and I brought him because he said he would put in a little bit of energy today. If there is a situation such as a foul trouble, I will consider it. Wonseok is not a normal situation. The calf muscles may tear further. You have to look at the timing. He is not in a position to play leisurely. Overloading can result in injury. Our players have good performance, so we will help them adapt.”

As coach Eun intended, Lee Won-seok started the game from the bench. From the first quarter, Samsung was dragged by Korea Gas Corporation, and it was difficult to solve the game. In particular, as Anthony Moss (202cm, F) and Darral Willis (201cm, F), big man resources, were blocked at the post, the accuracy of the attack decreased.

In the second quarter, as the situation went to Korea Gas Corporation, coach Eun replaced Lee Won-seok with 5 minutes and 59 seconds remaining. Lee won-seok matched up with Korea Gas Corporation’s Lee Dae-heon (197cm, F), but was still not perfect, allowing foul free throws.

With 4 minutes and 12 seconds left in the second quarter, Lee Won-seok received a pass from Moss and easily scored under the goal, scoring the first goal after his return. Lee Won-seok then received Kim Si-rae’s pass from the right side of the court with 44 seconds left in the second quarter and made a layup shot. All four points scored in the second quarter were impressive with Lee Won-seok’s exquisite positioning and movement.

In the 3rd and 4th quarters, Lee Won-seok finished the game by playing only 5 minutes and 31 seconds for injury management. On this day, Lee Won-seok played 11 minutes and 30 seconds, recording 4 points and 1 rebound.
Lee Won-seok has a lot of bad relationships with injuries this season. He missed many games while suffering ankle and calf injuries. It can be said that the team’s sluggishness also started when Lee Won-seok was left out.

Looking at Lee Won-seok’s records this season, he averaged 9.3 points and average rebounds of 6.0, which are high as rookie season records (average score of 8.6 points and average of 4.1 rebounds), but he still needs to gain more experience.

It is the time when Lee Won-seok needs his own development and management for Samsung, which is staying at the bottom.
