    COACH Tim Cone is hoping to have LA Tenorio back when Ginebra looks to finish off Bay Area on Wednesday.

    Tenorio suffered a groin injury late in the first half of Game Five and tried to return to action in the second half but was unable to continue.

    "Hopefully we can have him [back] fast enough," said Cone.

    "Groin problem like hamstring, is that if you continue playing and stretch it worse, they can take quite a while for them to heal."
