STA. ROSA — Bobby Ray Parks' status for San Miguel Alab Pilipinas remains day-to-day as he continues to heal up from his groin injury.
"He's still day-to-day. He's kinda got that LeBron James groin adductor injury," explained coach Jimmy Alapag after the defending champions' 88-76 victory over Hong Kong Eastern on Sunday. "He's doing everything he can to be ready. But he's basically a game-time decision on our game on Tuesday."
Parks has missed the last two outings for Alab, as the team has been looking for ways to compensate for his averages of 12.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists.
Good thing for Alapag, he's got a number of players stepping up over the last pair of games, with Josh Urbiztondo, Lawrence Domingo, Caelan Tiongson and Ethan Alvano all chipping in to support their reinforcements PJ Ramos and Renaldo Balkman.
Parks lauded his teammates for the bit win, and he is itching to rejoin the squad.
"They got the job done. They're learning and they're growing. We got the win and that's the most important thing, but we always got to learn. And I can't wait to be with my teammates out there," the two-time ABL Local MVP said.
Parks, though, isn't the lone injury woe Alab is dealing with.
Caelan Tiongson is also dealing with some back pains, making him a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Zhuhai Wolf Warriors on Tuesday.
"Hopefully, nothing serious. Sana he can rest because on the flight, his back might tighten up. Hopefully, Caelan can play, but if not, somebody's got to step in," said Alapag.
