January 14 ------ JACK Animam begins her road to recovery as she underwent a successful knee surgery on Wednesday. The Filipina center posted a picture of her in a hospital gown as she prepared to go under the knife in Cincinnati, Ohio. "Let's get this done. A totally different outfit for me," she shared on her Instagram account.
The 23-year-old Animam is expected to be out for at least six months to heal up on her ACL and MCL injury. Animam played for Radnicki Kragujevac in the Serbian league where she led the team with 20.0 points and 14.3 rebounds through eight games. Animam will miss the next campaigns of Gilas Pilipinas Women, including its gold medal defense in the Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi, Vietnam, while also deferring plans for the 2022 WNBA Draft.
