Noy Baclao out for 8-10 months

Alaska have suffered a tough blow, as veteran big man Noy Baclao will be out between eight to 10 months following the knee injury he incurred in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup opener Friday.

Aces head coach Jeffrey Cariaso told Tiebreaker Times on Saturday that the 32-year-old will be out that long, since MRI results showed that Baclao suffered a ruptured patellar tendon.

“Confirmed, ruptured patellar tendon. Out between 8-10 months,
” wrote Cariaso in a text message.

The 6-foot-4 Baclao got hurt at the 11:02-mark of the fourth quarter of Alaska’s match versus Columbian Dyip. He landed awkwardly following a hard drive to the basket.

Baclao grimaced in pain, then had to be stretchered out of the playing court. He was first brought to the team’s dugout at SM Mall of Asia Arena before being brought to the hospital.

Baclao left the match — which they lost 110-117 — with two points and a rebound in nearly seven minutes of play.
