PBA: Meralco’s Almazan injures knee, no timetable for return

Raymond Almazan’s stellar finals showing for the Meralco Bolts was hampered as he went down with an apparent knee injury during Game 3 of the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals Sunday.

Almazan was taken out of the game and headed straight to the locker room to have it checked.

Initial findings revealed that Almazan had a strained knee although the center said he did not hear a pop.

Almazan will also undergo MRI to determine the extent of the injury.

The Bolts lost to Ginebra, 92-84 last night with Japeth Aguilar being able to dominate the paint with his 23 points and 7 boards.

Almazan had a splendid 1st 2 games in the finals for Meralco before the injury happened.

There is no timetable yet for his return, and the Bolts will have to overcome such a huge blow to their finals campaign.
