    ROGER Pogoy will miss Gilas Pilipinas' campaign in the Asian Games.

    The veteran shooting guard failed to get a medical clearance that would allow him to join the national team in the 19th edition of the quadrennial meet starting Sept. 23.

    Tim Cone, appointed Gilas coach for the Asiad, and the PBA board are set to hold a news conference and expected to make announcements on team at 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

    Cone later on announced Pogoy has withdrawn from the team.

    "Roger had to withdraw from the national team for health reason," he said.

    Pogoy fell ill while resting in Cebu after suiting up for Gilas in the recent Fiba World Cup.

    While he religiously attended practices since Cone took over, he hasn't joined the team in scrimmages pending go signal from doctors.

    Pogoy is likewise with Gilas in its training camp at the Inspire Sports Academy in Laguna.

    But his health condition further compounded the shaky situation for Gilas which faces manpower woes less than a week before it departs for China.


      Calvin Abueva and Jason Perkins are still uncertain playing for the Philippines since they were not included in the list of 60 players drawn up by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) and submitted to the Hangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee prior to the deadline for the submission of entry by names.
