ANGELES CITY - San Miguel lost star guard Terrence Romeo to injury during the first half of its PBA Philippine Cup showdown with TnT Tropang Giga at the Smart 5G-powered Angeles University Foundation gym.
Initial diagnosis on the former three-time scoring champion is a dislocated shoulder, prompting team officials to take him to the nearby Medical City hospital for an examination.
Romeo already had 11 points when he hurt his shoulder in a collision with veteran TNT guard Ryan Reyes.
The flashy San Miguel guard stayed in the sidelines for a while receiving treatment from team staff before the decision was made to take him to the hospital.
Medical City Clark is part of the PBA bubble.
Until disclosating his shoulder, Romeo was doing good during the game by shooting 4-of-6 from the field, including 3-of-4 from three-point range.
The injury comes as a big blow for the Beermen, who are already without June Mar Fajardo after the reigning MVP suffered an injury in the offseason.
The Beermen lost later in the night, 107-88, to absorb a second straight loss in the bubble for a 1-2 record.
