Dwight Ramos has finally cleared his mandatory 14-day quarantine last Tuesday and has joined his first practice with Toyama last Wednesday.
Even with just a few practices on his belt by the weekend, the 6-foot-4 winger is pencilled in to suit up for the Grouses when they take on Ray Parks and Nagoya on Saturday at Toyama City Gymnasium.
And for the 23-year-old, he is just glad to finally be on the court again.
“I’m finally out of quarantine,” said the Ateneo product.
“I’m really excited to join the team and practice with them, meet everybody for the first time, and just be part of the team again.”
Struggling have been the Grouses over the first two weekends of the 2021-22 B.League season.
On opening weekend, they fell to Shinshu, 71-72 and 41-55.
Then just last weekend, the Grouses dropped to 0-4 after two losses to Tokyo, 71-96 and 81-114.
Leading the charge for the Grouses during those games was Zimbabwe-native Julian Mavunga as he averaged 19.8 points, 6.5 assists, and 5.0 rebounds per contest. Joshua Smith has been norming 11.8 points and 9.5 rebounds during that span as well.
This weekend, they take on the Diamond Dolphins who are 1-3 for the season. The game will be at 5:05 PM on Saturday and 12:05 PM on Sunday.
And Ramos hopes that everyone comes out to support them.
“I’m really excited for the game this weekend and hopefully, everybody can come out and see us and support us.”‘
