JAYSON Castro is patient with his return to action after undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs in his right foot.
The TNT KaTropa point guard said he hasn’t given himself any timetable for his return as he wants to fully recover from recent surgery. Castro didn’t play in TNT’s recent out-of-town game against Rain or Shine last week.
Although doctors have scheduled a two-week rest for the TNT guard, Castro is not in a hurry to play as he wants to make sure that he has recovered from the surgery.
“Wala pa kasi ayaw ko rin madaliin,” said Castro in an interview during the opening ceremony of the Makabansa Basketball League where he was one of the special guests along with former Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes and NLEX cager Kevin Alas.
Castro said he will begin to undergo physical activities next week after he underwent the procedure to remove the bone spurs in his foot.
“Nag-start na ako mag-rehab at light workouts next week. This week, total rest lang,” said Castro.
TNT has made changes to the coaching staff recently, with Bong Ravena being appointed as head coach and New Zealander coach Mark Dickel as consultant.
So far, Castro likes what he is seeing especially with the KaTropa employing a run-and-gun system.
“Maganda kasi last two practices na nandoon ako, nakita ko na may bagong sistema. Mabilis naka-adopt ‘yung mga teammates ko. At the same time, more on running kami ngayon kaya expect niyo na more on run-and-gun kami this conference,” said Castro.
