San Miguel can now heave a sigh of relief.
Team manager Gee Abanilla disclosed that Terrence Romeo did not suffer any major injury following an MRI scan on his right Achilles last Sunday.
“He had an MRI last Sunday and good thing his Achilles is all intact,” the amiable executive wrote in a text message to Tiebreaker Times, Tuesday.
Romeo did not see action in the Beermen’s 90-100 loss to Magnolia last Sunday. He left the semi-bubble to have his foot checked thoroughly.
He got hurt late in the opening quarter of their dominant 110-80 victory over Phoenix Super LPG last September 17 and sat out until the end.
Prior to that, the former three-time scoring king normed 22.2 points, including a conference-high 29 in a 111-102 win over reigning champs Ginebra.
Abanilla, though, said that the 29-year-old guard still feels on his foot, and he will undergo another check-up soon.
“There is just inflammation and pain on his foot up to now. He will have another check-up and hopefully, we could get some better news,” he wrote.
This marks yet another injury for Romeo this year. He had just recovered from a hyper-extended knee, which he incurred in their season opener last July 18.
SMB is currently in the upper half of the standings’ top eight with a 6-4 card and will look to cap off the eliminations with a win versus Alaska on Wednesday.
