TERRENCE Romeo could miss two more games, according to San Miguel coach Leo Austria, after sustaining an ankle sprain last Wednesday against Columbian.
Romeo missed Sunday’s match against Ginebra in the PBA Philippine Cup after rolling his ankle while stepping on the foot of Columbian cager Rashawn McCarthy.
Austria said he is not in a hurry to bring Romeo back on the court.
“We don’t know yet because we don’t want to aggravate his injury dahil I think he will miss two more games siguro,” Austria said.
Should he sit out for two more games, Romeo, incidentally, could miss San Miguel’s game against TNT next Sunday where the two teams are scheduled to play at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
Romeo was traded from TNT to San Miguel during the offseason in exchange of David Semerad, Brian Heruela, and two draft picks. Reports said TNT made the trade after KaTropa players allegedly petitioned for Romeo’s removal from the team.
So far though, Romeo has played limited action, scoring seven points in 12 minutes before rolling his ankle during the Columbian game.
