Almazan out for Game 3 vs Magnolia
Raymond Almazan will not suit up for Meralco in Game Three of the 2021 PBA Philippine Cup semifinal series against Magnolia due to an ankle sprain
Bolts coach Norman Black confirmed the development on Thursday.
Almazan had to exit the game after landing awkwardly on his left foot during a rebound battle against Magnolia’s Ian Sangalang for in the third quarter of the Game 2 series.
It also didn’t help that Cliff Hodge Bolts was ejected from Game Two for a flagrant foul penalty one that added to the technical foul that he got earlier in the game.
The short-handed Meralco would eventually drop Game 2 against Magnolia, 92-78.
“We will just go with what we have and our other guys will have to step up,” Black said.
The Bolts will try to avoid a 0-3 hole in Game 3 on Friday.
