VETERAN Val Acuna was rushed to the hospital after a hard collision with Chris De Chavez during the PBA 3x3 game between Purefoods TJ Titans and Platinum Karaoke on Wednesday.
Acuna fell on the floor after a clash of heads with the 6-foot-5 De Chavez, and had to be stretchered out of the Ynares Sports Arena on the way to the nearby Medical City.
The 35-year-old Acuna felt pain in his right cheek and had nausea-like symptoms, prompting league and team officials to have him brought to the hospital.
Forced to play with just three players, the Titans lost to Platinum Karaoke, 21-16, and tumbled to their second straight setback.
