Eczacisabi Sets Timeline For Rehab of Thaisa Daher After Ankle Injury

Brazilian volleyball star Thaisa Daher, who is employed by the Turkish club Eczacibasi in Istanbul, won’t require surgery on her injured ankle.

In an update posted on Wednesday, the club says that MRI and CT scans show injury to the ligaments of her ankle and a “very small lesion” on her cartilage.

Daher will spend the next 3 weeks with her ankle in a plaster splint with no weight on it, after which time she will begin physical therapy and a walking boot. The club also says that there’s no indication at this time that the ankle will require surgery.

The 29-year old, who won Olympic gold with Brazil at the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games and played on the 5th-place team in Rio, took to Instagram over the last 24 hours to thank her fans, friends, and supporters. That included a photo showing her new footwear.

The timeline for her return is not perfectly defined, but will leave her out for at least the remaining Champions League and Turkish League seasons. In the same game where she was injured, her team advanced to play domestic rivals VakifBank Istanbul in the Champions League Final 4 on April 22nd in Italy. Given the severity of the injury, it also rules her out for the Women’s Club World Championship from May 8th-14th in Japan – which is just 31 days away.
