    BARANGAY Ginebra could still be without half of its twin towers on Friday night when it takes on Phoenix in their PBA Philippine Cup matchup at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

    Greg Slaughter is still questionable as he continues to recover from a strained hamstring he sustained in practice a few days before their 97-83 loss to Alaska last Sunday in Antipolo.

    Gin Kings coach Tim Cone, though, didn’t completely rule out the Gin Kings star big man.

    “He didn’t practice today, but he’ll suit up tomorrow, and he’ll warm up,” Cone said after practice on Thursday. “Not a very good (chance), but there’s a chance (he’ll play). If he’s not feeling pain, we’ll give him a few minutes.”


      “But we’ll see,” he added. “It’s a hamstring, so those are very delicate, it’s a muscle injury, so it’s easy to get worse if you don’t take care of it properly. We trying to be smart with it, kind of take one step back and two steps forward with it, because it could get worse if we’re not careful.”

      Slaughter said he will have a checkup the morning before the game to see if he can play in the first of back-to-back matchups, the second a much-awaited encounter against San Miguel Beer on Sunday.

      “I’m going to see the doctor tomorrow, so hopefully I’ll get cleared,” the Filipino-American sltoman, who stands a shade below 7’0”, said.

      “It’s not a major injury, but it’s something you have to let heal so it doesn’t get worse,” he added.
