Fajardo still ready to play in Fiba Asia Cup if calf injury improves

San Miguel Beer center June Mar Fajardo hasn’t ruled himself out of the 2017 Fiba Asia Cup in Beirut, Lebanon just yet.

Fajardo is expected to miss at least two weeks due to a strained right calf he suffered on Wednesday in a win over TNT, but there is still a slight possibility that he could play for Gilas Pilipinas.

“[The moment I feel better] of course, I’ll play,” Fajardo told reporters in Filipino after the Beermen lost to the Star Hotshots, 104-98.

“It’s painful. The result appears to show that it’s on my old tear and it’s being overused and painful,” he said.

Fajardo will be joining his Gilas teammates when they leave for Lebanon early Sunday morning.

“Of course, I’ll go with them and if I feel okay, I’ll play,” Fajardo said.
