MARC Pingris is targeting a return next conference for Magnolia, ruling out a comeback in the crucial stages of the PBA Philippine Cup now.
Pingris missed the PBA All-Star Game over the weekend as he has yet to be cleared by doctors after sustaining a torn ACL last year.
The Magnolia veteran said he wants to be fully recovered when he returns.
“Mas okay ‘yung next conference talaga,” the 37-year-old said. “Gusto ko, iisipin ko 100 percent kapag naglaro ako. Hindi ‘yung 90 percent o 95 percent."
Pingris said he won't be holding anything back when he returns, vowing to be the same aggressive rebounder and fierce rebounder for the Hotshots.
“Kapag ako naglaro, sobrang magalaw ako. Talagang ibibigay ko lahat. Gusto ko 100 percent,” said Pingris.
