PBA Finals: Almazan delays surgery as he vows to finish series against Ginebra

Heading into Game 4 of the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals against Barangay Ginebra, the main question was the status of star center Raymond Almazan. Almazan left Game 3 early with an injury and was later diagnosed with a lateral meniscal tear on his left knee. Questions were answered Wednesday when Almazan started for the Bolts. He scored 12 points in 28 minutes. But that hardly mattered as the Gin Kings rolled to a 94-72 win and a 3-1 series lead. “Tinanong ako ni coach kung gusto ko maglaro eh, sabi ko kaya ko. Tapos uminom nalang akong pain killers,” Almazan said. “So yun, three times a day, di ko siya masyadong maramdaman. Pero meron parin siyang kaunting [kirot] alam mo yung parang may needle ka sa daliri na sumasabit. At first time kong maglaro nang may nararamdaman,” he added. Almazan says he’s good to play now but he will have surgery once the season is over. He’s pretty much day-to-day as he tries to feel his knee out. Almazan is hopeful to play again in Game 5. “Pagkatapos ng checkup ko, tinanong ako kung gusto ko ilaro, talagang 100% gusto ko siyang ilaro. And then ooperahan siya after ng series. Six weeks akong pahinga,” Almazan said. “Gusto kong tapusin yung series. Di ko sinasabing bayani ako, pero gusto ko talagang manalo eh. Eh yun yung way para makatulong ako sa team,” he added. — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
