Terrence Romeo ruled out of PH Cup due to shoulder injury

The injury bug has claimed another victim from San Miguel.

Already without six-time PBA MVP June Mar Fajardo, San Miguel will have to defend its Philippine Cup throne sans Terrence Romeo as the flamboyant guard leaves the PBA bubble in Clark, Pampanga due to a shoulder injury.

San Miguel team manager Gee Abanilla said Romeo suffered an acromioclavicular joint separation following a collision with Ryan Reyes in the first half of their 88-107 blowout loss to TNT on Friday, October 16.

Romeo, who had 11 points in the game, did not return after the accident.

"Unfortunately, Terrence will need 8 to 10 weeks to heal then [he] will undergo rehab," Abanilla told Rappler through text.

"He is going outside of the bubble to receive the best care possible for him."

After kicking off its title-retention bid on the right foot with a win over Magnolia in March, San Miguel has struggled since it entered the bubble. 

San Miguel lost to Rain or Shine and absorbed the worst loss of the season restart to TNT. 

But as the absence of Romeo compounded their woes, San Miguel head coach Leo Austria said other players have to rise to the occasion.

"For sure he is a big loss to us but I'm expecting somebody to step up," Austria said. – Rappler.com
