Arana still considers himself lucky after scary fall

RYAN Arana is hoping for the best after a scary fall in GlobalPort’s 114-113 win over Rain or Shine in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals on Tuesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Arana collided in mid-air with Chris Tiu and landed badly on his back and immediately received treatment from his team doctors.

The veteran guard out of La Salle went out with 35 seconds left in the second quarter and never returned to the game, though he watched the match from the bench.

The 6-2 lefty is now under observation but remains questionable for the knockout match on Thursday.

“Yung doctor sabi lang, pakiramdaman ko lang muna. Tignan ko muna kasi feeling ko yung adrenaline nandoon pa rin eh,” said Arana. “Tignan ko lang daw muna ngayong gabi kung anong mangyayari. Kapag sumakit pa ng todo, baka idiretso ko na sa ospital.”

Though he’s able to walk on his own after the match, the 35-year old said he still feels pain in every step.

“Ngayon yung likod medyo tight, and ‘yung muscle. Nag-contract siya, kumbaga parang pino-protektahan niya yung spine so medyo may pain especially kapag naglalakad,” Arana said.

“Kapag itinatapak ko ang left foot ko, nandoon parin ang pain. Tignan natin hanggang bukas kung ano ang gagawin,” he added.

As painful as that landing was, Arana is thankful that he landed flat on his back, instead of his tailbone which would have been worse.

“Good thing lang nauna ang likod ko. Flat ang bagsak kasi mas delikado kung tumama ang tailbone e,” said Arana. “Blessing in disguise pa rin na ‘yun ang nangyari sa akin, mas madali ang recovery.”
