THE PBA Philippine Cup playoffs is obviously taking its toll on Troy Rosario.
The TnT big man was badly shaken following ahard foul by Jackson Corpuz late in Game 3 between Magnolia and TnT Tropang Giga at the Don Honorio Ventura State University gym in Bacolor, Pampanga.
The Hotshots went on to win, 106-98, to cut the Tropang GIGA's lead to 2-1 in the best-of-seven finals.
Rosario had a bad foul after the contact, leaving him down on the floor for a few minutes before being carried to the TnT bench with 3:02 left in the period and the Hotshots leading, 75-67.
The 29-year-old forward suffered a dislocated finger that was popped right back into place as he sat on the bench.
Corpuz was assessed a flagrant foul penalty 1 for the infraction, but was ejected out of the game for having incurred a technical foul earlier.
Rosario only had two points and three rebound when he left the game. He was later brought to a nearby hospital to have his finger examined.
It was the latest injury he suffered in the course of the playoffs.
Rosario has just healed from a huge cut he suffered following an elbow during the semifinals series between San Miguel and TnT. The bandage on the cut was only taken off in Game 2.
