CHRISTIAN Standhardinger has finally joined the Philippine team on the court as coach Yeng Guiao got 13 of his 14 men on Thursday's evening practice at Meralco Gym.
Fresh off San Miguel's heartbreaking defeat to Ginebra in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals to Ginebra just a day prior, the Fil-German forward did not waste time immersing himself with the squad bound for the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia.
Also present were Paul Lee, Stanley Pringle, James Yap, Chris Tiu, Gabe Norwood, Raymond Almazan, Beau Belga, Maverick Ahanmisi, Asi Taulava, JP Erram, Don Trollano, and cadet Ricci Rivero.
Kobe Paras was the lone absentee for the session.
Guiao is expected to bare his full 12-man roster tonight, with the meeting for the final list of Philippine delegation set on Friday.
PBA commissioner Willie Marcial and Rain or Shine team owner Raymond Yu were one of the few curious observers for the practice, joining the throng of fans which included NLEX swingman Alex Mallari.
