Muta Toure, the shot blocker of the LPRC Oilers has been inactive for a while now. Chocho as he is also known as, sustained a broken arm during the National County Sport Meet.
Muta Toure absence from the league has created a void in in his Oilers squad which can not be easily fill. His absence has had the team to run small ball offence to make do.
Chocho injury came after he went for a successful put-back dunk after a missed shot by the President of the Republic of Liberia, His Excellency Dr. George M. Weah. He slipped off the rim and landed awkwardly on his arm, which lead to a fracture of his radius.
Initially he sort treatment from a local doctor. A second observation noticed that the bones were not align. Been an athlete it is paramount to have the bone reset by a specialist.
Muta was then flown to Dubai to undergo operation and have the hand reset.
