Hungrybox Injured Before EVO Weekend

Esteemed Super Smash Bros. Melee player Juan “Hungrybox” DeBiedma took to twitter recently to announce his recent wrist injury. The former Evo champ and current number one player told his followers that after playing Fox and Falco during an Orlando local he started to experience sharp wrist and forearm pain. Injuries are never a good thing, but the timing for this injury could not be worse with Evo weekend just a few days away.

This isn’t the first time Hungrybox has suffered an injury days before an event. In fact, he managed to place 4th at Genesis 4 with a broken finger last year. While there have been a few fans making light of the injury or taunting Hungrybox, most have been supportive. Even those who aren’t fans of the famed Jigglypuff’s playstyle have largely lamented the incident, as most people expected Evo to play a large role in deciding the rankings for the end of the year.

Hungrybox is still expected to enter and compete at Evo, but only time will tell how much of an effect this injury will have on his gameplay.

Check out our guide to watching Evo and make sure you don't miss a second of gameplay this weekend!

While I do not play melee at the pro level, I do wish Hungrybox a fast recovery. Rest those hands, my dude.:039::jigglypuff64::jigglypuffmelee::jigglypuff::4jigglypuff::ultjigglypuff:

Unless I don't see any medical substantiation, I have the right to not believe him, I'm really pragmatic.
With this, I'm not saying that he's lying.

Between this, Mkleo getting Chicken Pox and Tweek's flight being canned, there is some strange karma going on this week at EVO.

Aw damn it. I hope it's nothing too severe.....

He might still be able to do well in EVO regardless, but healing up from an injury is more important. Again,. hopefully it just isn't anything too severe. You've got my prayers for a full and fast recovery soon, Hbox.
