Fajardo finally fit to play for Gilas?

MANILA, Philippines – It’s been exactly 11 days today since June Mar Fajardo hurt his right calf, and the guessing game is whether he’s already fit to suit up with Gilas Pilipinas in the knockout stage of the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup in Beirut.

It’s been 11 days since Fajardo was advised by his doctor to take a weeklong rest. But he was also advised another week for strengthening sessions.

But before leaving for the Lebanon capital, the San Miguel behemoth stressed the decision on whether he’s playing or not is on him. He vowed he would play if he would feel better.

On Sunday in Beirut, Fajardo finally rejoined his Gilas teammates in their morning light workout but skipped their game against Qatar later in the day.

But would he be available already against Korea or Japan in the quarterfinals tomorrow?
