Ross says ankle injury not serious


Chris Ross admitted feeling discomfort in his Achilles tendon, that is why he did not finish the San Miguel Beermen’s 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup match versus the Alaska Aces on Friday evening.

Ross only played for 13 minutes and 36 seconds. He then exited with just two rebounds, two steals, and an assist.

Fortunately, the Beermen already built a big lead in the second quarter thanks to their 36-point performance in the period en route to a 119-101 win.

“I could have kept playing but we already had the lead, so we kind of decided to shut it down. I don’t want to put any extra pressure on it,” Ross said. “If it was a closer game, I could have continued.”

The 34-year-old do-it-all guard also said he believes the injury isn’t too serious.

“It doesn’t need to be checked. It’s just something that has to be managed.”

Ross’ status for San Miguel’s match versus Magnolia Hotshots on June 26 is still unsure. However, the spitfire guard said he plans to play.
