Orlando Pirates defender, Rooi Mahamutsa, will be assessed by the team doctors today to determine the extent of his elbow injury.

He joins defenders Patrick Phungwayo and Siyabonga Sangweni, as well as winger Daine Klate who are nursing an assortment of injuries.

Pirates PRO, Mickey Modisane, confirmed to the Siya crew Mahamutsa will see the team doctors today.

“Mahamutsa dislocated his elbow in the game against SuperSport. The elbow placed back into position and he had some treatment to kill the pain,” said Modisane.

“The team doctors will assess him this morning and depending on their assessment, he might go and see a specialist. But like I said, that will depend on our doctors assessment,” added Modisane.

Meanwhile, Modisane also revealed that Klate will also be assessed today to determine the extent of his knee injury.
