NORTHPORT rookie Robert Bolick is set to go under the knife after injuring his knee in the Batang Pier's big win over San Miguel Beer in their PBA Governors Cup game on Wednesday.
Team owner Mikee Romero made known of Bolick's condition through Facebook on Saturday.
The team will officially release a statement later in the day regarding the matter.
"Robert, we wish you the best in your operation," Romero posted on Facebook.
"The team will miss you for a couple of months, but I'm sure you will comeback stronger," said Romero, also Deputy House Speaker. "I am just behind you all the way."
Bolick has already undergone MRI test following the fall, result of which had been relayed to NorthPort management on Friday.
"We already have initial results on the MRI but it's best for Robert Bolick to get a second opinion," said a team insider who refused to be named owing to the sensitivity of the matter.
"We will make further announcements once we have confirmed everything," added the same source.
Bolick, last year's no. 3 overall pick, was immediately put in an immobilizer shortly after undergoing MRI test
The Batang Pier (3-4) won't play until Nov. 3 against the Alaska Aces.
