Brandon Ganuelas-Rosser injury update
Blackwater will start the new season without top pick Brandon Rosser.
The 6-foot-7 Rosser will miss Blackwater’s first few games in the PBA Philippine Cup as he recovers from a fractured middle finger sustained during the Philippines’ run to the bronze medal in the Hanoi Southeast Asian Games.
“Mga two weeks pa siguro yan,” said Blackwater team manager Johnson Martinez.
Season 47 of the PBA starts on June 5 with the all-Filipino conference.
Ganuelas-Rosser, the top pick in the PBA Draft, signed a three-year deal with the Bossing.

Alas won NCAA basketball titles as coach of the Letran Knights in 1998, 2003, and 2005.
