Gilas Pilipinas to assess Matt Nieto injury

Gilas Pilipinas will assess the severity of the ankle injury Matt Nieto sustained in their 93-69 demolition of Thailand in the second window of the FIBA Asia Cup 2021 Qualifiers.

Nieto left the court in the third quarter after rolling his ankle during a drive attempt and sat out the game the rest of the way.

"He just sprained his ankle. We do not know how bad it is but he could not return," said Gilas Pilipinas head coach Jong Uichico.

"We have to check if it is swollen or not."

Nieto played steadily before his injury, putting up 12 points on a healthy 6-of-8 shooting to go with 2 assists and 1 rebound in just 14 minutes of play.

It was his best scoring game of the qualifiers after averaging 3 points and 6 assists in the Philippines' first two games.

Gilas Pilipinas tops Group A with a 3-0 record followed by South Korea (2-0), Indonesia (1-2), and Thailand (0-4). – Rappler.com
