A DAY after his best game thus far in his young PBA career, Petron’s rookie center Junmar Fajardo has been confined in a hospital after suffering scrotal trauma during the Boosters’ match against San Mig Coffee on Sunday.
The injury came on the heels of Fajardo's best game as a pro, tallying 16 points, 13 rebounds, three steals, and a block shot in the Boosters’ 84-90 loss to the Mixers. Apparently, the Cebuano hotshot played hurt during his breakout game.
San Miguel Corporation sports director Noli Eala reported the news on his Twitter account @NoliEala.
“Pls pray for Junmar who is now in d hospital after suffering frm scrotal trauma. He got hit last night in a sensitive area yet endured pain,” wrote Eala.
Eala said that the worst case scenario for the No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft is that he will be missing a few games.
“Best case is JF is relieved of swelling in 2-3 days. Worst case is possible surgery n will be sidelined for 3-4 weeks. Hoping for the best,” Eala wrote.
