Rey Nambatac out for rest of Letran's preseason schedule due to hyperextended knee

LETRAN star Rey Nambatac will miss the rest of the Filoil Flying V Preseason Premier Cup due to a hyperextended left knee.

Nambatac said he injured his knee two weeks ago during practice, but expects to return in time for the NCAA season.

"Sa NCAA na balik ko," said Nambatac before the Letran-University of Santo Tomas match at the Filoil Flying V Centre on Wednesday.

Nambatac, however, is still eager to play and help the Knights, who are struggling the preseason and has lost four straight.

"Try ko pa rin maglaro pero alalay na lang," he said.
