Reyes not replacing injured Fajardo in Gilas’ Fiba Asia Cup roster

Gilas Pilipinas head coach Chot Reyes said he has no plans of replacing June Mar Fajardo in the Fiba Asia Cup lineup.

Fajardo is expected to miss the tournament in Beirut, Lebanon due to a strained right calf.

“No. If he can’t play, then we go with 11,” Reyes told reporters Saturday.

The reigning three-time PBA MVP hasn’t ruled himself out of the Fiba Asia. He will join the team when it leaves for Beirut, Lebanon early Sunday morning.

But Reyes said Gilas is already undergoing its buildup without Fajardo in mind rather than taking a wait-and-see approach.
