Corey Webster enjoyed a bright start to NBL24 before a lingering ankle issue limited his availability during the middle part and latter parts of the season.

The veteran New Zealander reached double-digits in five of the first seven matches of the Wildcats’ season, but only appeared on court seven times for the rest of it.

Webster hit 16 points in 26 minutes in the game-one win over Tasmania at RAC Arena after starting in place of his younger brother Tai who was sidelined with a foot injury.

He then followed that up with 11 points and four rebounds in the annual Pink Game victory against Adelaide at home before dropping a dozen to go with five assists and four rebounds against grand finalists Melbourne United.

The three-time NBL champion also contributed in losses to Adelaide (14 points) and Brisbane (11) on October 21 and 27 respectively.

But from then on, he spent a large chunk of the season on the sidelines before his minutes ramped up in the final regular-season game against Tasmania with Bryce Cotton out.

“It’s been a struggle with my injury this year, it’s been kind of an ongoing one but… I’m ready to go now and back to 100 per cent,” Webster said before game one of the semi-final series against the JackJumpers.

The experienced Webster featured in all three semi-final games, with eight points in 18 minutes his best performance of the series.

The 35-year-old averaged 6.1 points, 1.4 rebounds and 0.9 assists for the season.
