    STA. ROSA, Laguna - Justin Brownlee is hoping for the best after sustaining an injury in Game Two of the Asean Basketball League (ABL) finals on Wednesday.

    Brownlee retreated to the dugout hurting after diving for the ball during the fourth quarter of Alab Pilipinas’ 103-100 loss to Mono Vampire at the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Complex.

    The Alab import said he is still unsure what happened during the incident.

    “I’m not sure. I just dove for the ball and I felt something. I’m not sure. I’ll know tonight,” said Brownlee, who was attended to by Alab staff on the bench upon his return.

      Brownlee, who is also Ginebra's resident import in the PBA, sat out most of the fourth quarter and only returned after Lawrence Domingo fouled out in the final three minutes.

      Alab Pilipinas coach Jimmy Alapag said he is also unsure about the condition of Brownlee, other than suffering cramps.

      “Right now, we don’t know. He cramped in the game. I didn’t want to risk it. It was a pretty bad cramp where he couldn’t move. At that point, I don’t want to risk it. We will know more tomorrow. We are hoping and praying for the best,” said Alapag.

      Brownlee missed two three-pointers in the game's final possession that could have  sent the game into overtime.

      Bronwlee hopes to be back in full fitness for Game Three on Saturday in Bangkok.

      “I really hope so. Like I said, I’m not sure what it is but hopefully, I can find out tonight or tomorrow morning. I hope I’ll be ready on Saturday,” said Brownlee.
