Barako’s floor general RR Garcia out for two weeks



Barako Bull point guard RR Garcia will be out for about two weeks after dislocating his right shoulder, head coach Koy Banal said Friday night.

The Energy definitely felt the absence of Garcia during the 116-92 loss to Blackwater. Garcia is the team’s leading scorer with 17.1 PPG, and also leads the team in win shares.

His ability to read and get to the rim using his quickness was badly missed. Although Garcia is averaging less than two assists per game, his playmaking forces defenses to collapse and react differently.

“Ininda namin yung pagkawala ni RR,” Banal said. “Not saying na no one can match-up the ability of RR pero mababa morale ng team kapag may nai-injure.”

Barako Bull dropped to 4-5 after the loss to the Elite.

Banal still hopes his other backcourt players can step up for the absence of his main playmaker.

“I still believe anybody can step up and fill up yung iniwan ni RR.”
