Tiebreaker Times Vic Manuel can't wait to get back in Alaska's fold: 'Nanggigigil na nga ako' Basketball News PBA  Vic Manuel PBA Season 44 Alaska Aces 2019 PBA Commissioners Cup

Vic Manuel should have made his return to the Alaska Aces in their 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup opener versus the Columbian Dyip on Sunday night, but those plans stalled yet again.

Last Monday, Manuel felt pain in his calf, forcing him to miss practices. With him still sidelined, the 31-year-old hasn’t played a game since the 2018 Governors’ Cup Finals versus the Magnolia Hotshots.

“Nung Monday, parang nag-tight yung calf ko. Na-pull ko ata siya kaya hanggang ngayon, ‘di pa ako nagpapractice. So may rehab akong isang linggo pa,” he said.

“Siguro until Friday, tapos malalaman ko kung mag-practice ako ng Saturday.”

After Sunday’s match which they won, 111-98, the Aces have a tight schedule, as they will play three games in nine days. And for Manuel, he aims to return in one of those games.

“Yun nga hinahabol ko.

“Tapusin ko lang siguro yung rehab ko. Kung binigyan na ako ng go-signal ng doktor, pwede naman na ako. Kasi yung likod ko okay na, tapos tightness lang sa right calf ko,” lamented Manuel.

For now, though, one thing is certain for Manuel.

“Nanggigil na nga ako eh. Gusto ko nang maglaro.

“Parang noong ayon, three weeks na akong nagpa-practice, nakakabalik na sa kondisyon, tapos nagkaproblema uli sa right leg,” he closed.
