During the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers’ 79-68 win over the University of the East Red Warriors, fourth-year combo guard Renzo Subido was sitting on the sidelines.
The 22-year-old suffered in a freak injury just two days ago.
According to first-year Growling Tigers head coach Aldin Ayo, the 5-foot-9 guard had already been playing with one good foot entering the season. But last Friday, he could not move his healthy leg after their session.
“Ever since the season, he was playing with one foot. Yung na-injure naman yung healthy foot niya. Yung dalawang paa na niya ngayon yung injured,” disclosed Ayo.
Subido has been pivotal in UST’s strong start, averaging a team-high 15.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists – eight of which came from off-the-bench duties.
Up until now, the team’s staff do not know what the injury is. But they believe that Subido has been overworked, as he has played non-stop since November 2017 when he joined PBA D-League club team Marinerong Pilipino Skippers.
“Until now, we still don’t know. He is still going to have his MRI tomorrow. But the initial diagnosis is stress fracture. Sana ‘wag naman,” admitted the two-time Coach of the Year.
Still, the team’s staff is making sure that the Growling Tigers are ready if the results turn out negative.
“Hopefully, hindi malala. Pero we are always bracing for the worst e. Hopefully, may mga players na mag-step up sa mababakante ni Renzo,” Ayo hopes.
