TNT forward Troy Rosario might sit out the rest of the PBA Philippine Cup finals after suffering spinal shock from a nasty fall in Game 3, an accident that also saw him dislocate the pinky finger of his left hand.
Rosario fell on his back following a flagrant foul from Jackson Corpuz during a drive attempt in the third quarter of Game 3, which Magnolia won, 106-98, on Sunday, October 24.
Visibly in pain, Rosario had to be carried out of the court by his teammates and he did not return.
Tropang Giga team manager Gabby Cui said Rosario is “doubtful to return” as he may need surgery on his finger.
“Spinal shock causing only 70% sensation on his left leg plus open finger dislocation,” Cui told Rappler when asked about the diagnosis for Rosario.
Losing Rosario would be a major blow for TNT, considering he has been one of the more consistent players in the playoffs.
Rosario has scored in double digits in 9 of their 11 playoff games, averaging 11.6 points and 6.5 rebounds.
Game 3 was by far his least productive performance in the playoffs as Rosario chalked up just 2 points and 3 rebounds due to early foul trouble before his abrupt exit.
