PASAY—UP's UAAP campaign hit a road block as rookie center Jerson Prado injured his right knee late into the second quarter of his team's match against Adamson at the Mall of Asia Arena on Sunday.

Prado landed badly after grabbing a rebound, hurting his knee.

He was stretchered off and brought to the nearest hospital for further findings, although initial analysis said that he dislocated his knee.

The Fighting Maroons already have a player down to a knee injury as Kyles Lao tore his ACL during the preseason.
