Kiefer Ravena out for Window 5 due to emergency dental procedure

Gilas Pilipinas’ team captain will not take part in the Philippines’ Window 5 campaign in the 2023 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.

The 29-year-old experienced severe pain and fever due to an infected impacted right mandibular third molar.

Recovery time post-surgery takes three to five days.

Vital has been the 6-foot-1 combo guard for Gilas in the Qualifiers, averaging 7.3 points, 2.0 assists, and 1.3 rebounds in four games played.
