JARED Dillinger will miss the first month of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup due to a nagging quad injury.
Meralco coach Norman Black said Dillinger has yet to fully recover from the right quad injury that forced him to sit out a major part of the Governors’ Cup and the Philippine Cup.
“JD will be out for at least another month. Same injury,” said Dillinger.
Dillinger will join Raymond Almazan in the sidelines for the opening match against Blackwater on Sunday. Almazan will not be making his Meralco debut on Sunday due to a calf injury.
Meanwhile, Ranidel De Ocampo didn’t play in Meralco’s latest tune-up game against Alaska, but Black assured that De Ocampo will suit up for the match against Blackwater.
“He is healthy. He is ready to go,” said Black.
