    JUNE Mar Fajardo’s availability for the PBA All-Star game remains hanging in the balance as no advisory has been given by San Miguel management if the 6-foot-10 center would be able to play in Sunday’s centerpiece event.

    League media bureau chief Willie Marcial said it has yet to receive formal notice from Fajardo’s team regarding his status in the mid-season spectacle.

    “Wala pa namang abiso sa amin tungkol kay June Mar pero hahanapan na lang natin siya ng kapalit if ever di na siya puwede,” Marcial told Spin.ph on Wednesday.

    Fajardo has been initially diagnosed with a severe sprain in the lateral side of his left ankle, according to San Miguel team manager Gee Abanilla.

    The 25-year-old big man out of University of Cebu was originally scheduled to undergo an X-ray, but decided at the last minute to have it instead on Thursday to get an extra day of rest.

    “Sa ngayon, mino-monitor lang si June Mar ng medical team. Si June Mar lang ang nag-request na huwag muna magpa-X-ray ngayon para makapag-pahinga pa siya,” Abanilla disclosed.

    The reigning league MVP sustained the injury during the first quarter of the Beermen’s 102-91 victory over Barako Bull Tuesday night.

    Fajardo, the leading vote-getter for this year’s All-Star festivities, was supposed to team up with fellow Cebuano big man Greg Slaughter for the South team that also includes NLEX center Asi Taulava in an imposing frontline.
