Jeremiah Gray suffers the injury in the third leg as TNT fails to reach the knockout round of PBA 3x3 for the first time

MANILA, Philippines – TNT Tropang Giga star Jeremiah Gray will miss significant time away from PBA 3×3 after he sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Gray suffered the injury in the third leg in a pool stage game against the Limitless App Masters as he landed awkwardly following a two-handed dunk.

Tropang Giga team manager Gabby Cui confirmed the injury.

Gray immediately sat out after hurting his knee and missed the rest of the third leg as TNT failed to reach the knockout round for the first time.

The Tropang Giga captured the championship in the first leg, with the Filipino-American finishing fifth in the tournament in scoring with a total of 41 points, including 11 points in their finals victory over the Meralco Bolts.

Gray also played a key role as TNT finished third in the second leg.

Almond Vosotros, Samboy de Leon, and Lervin Flores are expected to be back for the Tropang Giga in the fourth leg, with the Tropang Giga having the option to replace Gray with another player in their four-man lineup.

The fourth leg kicks off on Saturday, December 4. – Rappler.com
