BATANGAS guard John Ragasa was taken to Medical City as a precaution after taking an accidental elbow to his jaw in a 81-79 win over Wangs in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup on Tuesday.

Ragasa was the recipient of Courier Robbie Herndon's elbow with 4:57 left in the fourth period and Batangas leading by a whisker, 67-66.

The bearded cager was left so dizzy that he could hardly stand up. He stayed on the floor for about two minutes before medical staff assisted him to the dugout.

Ragasa wore a neck brace when he headed to The Medical City. 

Batangas still went on to claim its second victory, 81-79, behind Joseph Sedurifa and Cedric De Joya's late-game heroics.

Dr. Ges Mundo, who attended to Ragasa, said Ragasa needs to undergo a spinal X-ray as a precaution but was quick to ease fears.

"I think he's gonna be fine," said Mundo.
