According to Tropang Giga coach Chot Reyes, Pogoy strained his left calf in practice, while Erram hurt his lower back and was rushed to the Makati Medical Center for an MRI test during Tropang Giga’s 96-93 loss Hotshots on Friday, February 11.

Erram and teammate Kelly Williams collided in mid-air at the 3:40 mark of the second period which lead to Erram falling down and injuring his back.

He was then later carried by TNT personnel to the team bench and then taken to the hospital while the game was ongoing.

Meanwhile, Calvin Oftana and Anthony Semerad also both suffered injuries in NLEX’s 100-110 loss in the first game against sister team Meralco.

Rome Dela Rosa and James Laput will also sit out several of their games as the former is dealing with a hamstring injury that will keep him out for two weeks while the latter will undergo surgery on Monday to remove bone spurs in his ankle that will take a lengthy period to recover.

With this, Pogoy and Erram’s injuries may deal a major blow to Gilas Pilipinas as both are included in the roster that will see action for the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.
