Ginebra activates LA Tenorio ahead of Terrafirma game


LA Tenorio is set to make his return to Ginebra San Miguel on Sunday.

The beloved 39-year-old guard was activated by the Gin Kings on Friday, replacing Aljon Mariano in the lineup just two days before their clash against Terrafirma on Sunday at the Philsports Arena.

Tip-off is at 6:15 PM.

This will be the first game Tenorio will play since their February 19 clash against Blackwater in the 2023 PBA Governors’ Cup.

Tenorio, whose streak of playing 744 consecutive games was put to a halt after being diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer, eventually beat the disease.

The eight-time PBA champion is now set to play in his first game in 287 days.

Ginebra is currently 3-1 in the standings.
