Troy Rosario rolls left ankle in freak accident then hurts hip



Tiebreaker Times Troy Rosario rolls left ankle in freak accident then hurts hip Basketball Gilas Pilipinas News PBA  Troy Rosario TNT Katropa PBA Season 44 Gilas Pilipinas Men 2019 PBA Commissioners Cup 2019 FIBA World Cup

Troy Rosario has now sat out in a few practices of Gilas Pilipinas. And he has injuries to blame for it.

The 6-foot-7 forward tweaked his left ankle during one of TNT’s practices, and then suffered a hip injury days after that during the KaTropa’s 115-97 win over Blackwater Elite in PBA Commissioner’s Cup action last Sunday.

“Yung sa ankle kasi disgrasya e, ‘di ba maulan tas madulas yung court — patapos na nga yung practice e, nadale ako,” narrated Rosario to Tiebreaker Times.

“Buti nga hindi ganun kalala yung tapilok sa kaliwa. Nadulas lang ako e.

“Tapos yung hip flexor ganun din — lamang na nga kami, alam ko palabas na nga ako nun e, may isu-sub na nga dapat eh. Pero ang sabi ng doktor buti di ko na raw inilaro, ‘di ko na pinilit pang bumalik,” added the four-year pro.

Those injuries, however, isn’t enough for Rosario to stop attending practices. He still comes through during practice sessions, watching attentively from the sidelines just so he could also familiarize himself from their sets.

“Nagpupunta lang talaga ako kasi kailangan ko rin makita yung ginagawa para ‘di ako mawala,” he said.

Rosario, though, shared that there is progress in terms of healing from his injuries. But that doesn’t mean the National University product is sure of suiting up for the KaTropa’s game versus the Magnolia Hotshots.

“Tignan natin kung maging maganda yung pakiramdam ko coming Monday,” he said.

“Kung kaya, lalaro ako.”

Rosario could actually sit that game out so that he will be fully recovered come the mid-season joust’s quarterfinals, where TNT is armed with a twice-to-beat edge. But if he had his way, he doesn’t want his rest to be prolonged.

“Yun na nga, pasok na rin pero iba pa rin ‘pag nabakante kanng mahaba, nawawala yung timing.”
