UP Fighting Maroons program director Bo Perasol said Cansino’s status will be determined after Tuesday’s practice. The Maroons forward suffered the injury with minutes left in the Maroons’ game against the Ateneo Blue Eagles on Sunday.
“Bone bruising and minimal/manageable swelling on the knee,” said Perasol. “He is able to do some movement drills and we will check again later in practice.”
“His ability to practice or play will be decided upon by our medical team and coaching staff. We are still awaiting the official reading of the MRI,” said Perasol.
The Maroons' are still waiting for the medical team's decision on CJ Cansino.
Cansino was stretched off the court late in the third of their victory over Ateneo on Sunday following a collision. Though he was back on the bench for the fourth quarter, Cansino never returned to the match. He had 11 points.
The second-seed Fighting Maroons need only a win against La Salle to advance into the finals. The Final Four is slated on Wednesday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
