Terrence Romeo had a short-lived return as he suffered an injury anew during San Miguel’s 2021 PBA Philippine Cup opener versus Meralco, Sunday.
The flashy guard was playing his first game back from a shoulder injury, which cut short his stint in the Clark bubble last year. He left the game with about eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter after hurting his left ankle.
Romeo suffered the injury while trying to evade the defense. Play did not stop until the 8:32-mark, though, when he sat on the sidelines clutching on his leg.
Teammates then helped him to the dugout, after which he left the game with 18 points. His exit came while he was leading the Beermen’s fightback.
The injury, though, could be worse than initially thought. One Sports’ Carla Lizardo reported that Romeo heard a pop on the side of his knee, and it is suspected that he might have sustained an MCL injury.
