Tamayo making good progress, still questionable for China tune-up

Carl Tamayo was one of the 13 Gilas players training inside the AUF Sports & Cultural Gym in Pampanga, Tuesday morning.

He was still unable to take part in the drills of Gilas head coach Tab Baldwin and his staff. The 20-year-old UP Fighting Maroon was already able to join the shooting and conditioning drills, though.

“His ankle has improved since he injured it against Indonesia,” said Gilas trainer Dex Aseron.

“We’re working on strengthening it, and he was able to jog and shoot earlier in practice.”

Tamayo — who had 10 points in 11 minutes against Korea last Wednesday — sprained his left ankle during their game against Indonesia last Friday.

With 7:47 left in the contest and Gilas up by 11, the 6-foot-7 forward landed on the foot of Arki Wisnu, resulting in the injury.

Tamayo has a one-week timetable to recover. It technically ends on Friday when they arrive in Belgrade for the 2021 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

Gilas will first see whether Tamayo can join the team during its tune-up against Team Dragon (China) on Wednesday at 4:30PM.

“Carl is day-to-day right now and we’ll see tomorrow if he can play tomorrow,” said Aseron.

Tamayo will still be part of the 13-player contingent of Gilas whether he plays against China or not.

Also in the team are Dwight Ramos, Angelo Kouame, Justine Baltazar, Kai Sotto, SJ Belangel, RJ Abarrientos, Isaac Go, William Navarro, Mike Nieto, Geo Chiu, Jordan Heading, and Lebron Lopez.
