Blatche not wasting time to get in top shape, works out with ROS


Andray Blatche worked out with Rain or Shine on Wednesday noon at Meralco Gym to show he isn’t wasting any of his time to get in shape for the upcoming Fiba World Cup.

The Gilas Pilipinas naturalized player further familiarized himself with the schemes as he worked with Gilas Pilipinas mainstays Gabe Norwood and Beau Belga, as well as Rain or Shine head coach and concurrent national team deputy Caloy Garcia.

Aside from Rain or Shine, the 32-year-old slotman is also set to train with national team coach Yeng Guiao’s NLEX when the team resumes its practices next week.

Blatche will join his second practice session with Gilas Pilipinas on early Thursday evening.

The 2019 FIBA World Cup will run from August 31 to September 15 in China.

Gilas, seeded 31st in the world, will play against 2016 Olympic silver medalist Serbia, 13th ranked Italy, and 39th ranked Angola in Group D.
