Iwatani posted the following message on her Twitter account.

Will miss the draft of the 4/14 later.
It's too hard to walk.
I haven't had a sore day since I got hurt.
On the contrary, I worked hard well up to now.
I want to compliment myself.
MSG out, it is a good opportunity to know, but I do not want to mirror this condition, so I will be happy to rest. Hey, guys.
