Rain or Shine gunner Jeff Chan will not be able to play for the rest of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup finals series between the Elasto Painters and the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters, head coach Yeng Guiao confirmed to media after Game 5 on Friday night.
“Wala na si Jeff (Chan),” Guiao said. “The doctors were trying to minimize the pain pero hindi na umeepekto, so baka napunit na.”
Chan has been nursing a Plantar Fasciitis injury since the semifinals of the conference where he would only suit up for one game.
He returned to the Finals and averaged 12.33 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 assists in three games while shooting at an astounding clip of 45.5 percent from beyond the arc.
Without Chan, the Elasto Painters lost a floor-spacer and a threat in Games 4 and 5 which they both lost.
Talk ‘N Text will shoot for the title on Sunday while Rain or Shine tries to extend the series to a winner-take-all affair on Wednesday next week.
