THE injury bug just won't stop biting TNT.
Jericho Cruz is the latest to fall to the KaTropa's injury list, forcing him out of commission for at least a month.
The Adamson guard suffered a strained hamstring during the team's practice on Wednesday which will render him inactive for at least the next four weeks.
Cruz joins the growing list of injured TNT players which includes Troy Rosario and Yousef Taha.
Rosario is still recovering from a broken nose incurred from a tuneup game against NLEX late last year, while Taha still needs another week after suffering a cut on his forehead in the same scrimmage.
Cruz registered four points on a 1-of-9 shooting from the field, on top of three rebounds and an assist in 25 minutes of play in the KaTropa's 90-79 defeat to Ginebra last Sunday at Philippine Arena.
That leaves Jayson Castro, Brian Heruela, and Ryan Reyes in TNT's depleted backcourt rotation heading into its next game against Phoenix on Saturday at Ynares Center in Antipolo.
