Aircraft clips lighting support pole at Bengkulu

Only of interest because of the airline involved.
Pesawat Lion Air Tabrak Tiang di Bandara Fatmawati Bengkulu, Manajemen Pusat Lakukan Tindakan
BENGKULU, Indonesia: A Lion Air plane crashed into a pole at the Fatmawati airport in Bengkulu city on Wednesday (Nov 7) as it was about to take off for Jakarta. The crash caused its left wing to tear, as well as flight delays involving airlines such as Batik Air, local media reported.
Photos posted by Facebook user Irsan Hidayat showed a large fragment dangling from the wing of the aircraft as people gathered on the tarmac, some holding on to their luggage.

Actually, looks like maybe just the winglet was damaged and the wing is OK. Can you CDL the winglet on an NG to ferry it for repair?

If you can on an A330, I can't see any reason why not on a 737:

It is possible to CDL it without the winglet.
Only you can not fly at night because the position light is build into the winglet.
