PBA Injury Update: Jeremiah Gray is set to miss the 2024 PBA Season due to Knee Injury

Jeremiah Gray, a key player for Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings, might not be able to play for the whole 2023-2024 PBA season.

He suffered severe knee injuries during the recent PBA on Tour, causing multiple tears in his knee. Reports say he has a "triple tear," which includes damage to his anterior cruciate (ACL), medial collateral (MCL), and posterior cruciate (PCL) ligaments.

Gray, who was chosen as the second overall pick in the 2022 PBA Rookie Draft, will undergo surgery later this month. Doctors estimate it will take him around 10 to 12 months to recover.

The 26-year-old forward got injured during a game against the NLEX Road Warriors on July 30. He was attempting a fastbreak layup with 22 seconds left in the third quarter when the injury occurred.

Jayson Castro PBA Injury

Jayson Castro also missed some games but came back in the same game. He played for 10 minutes and scored three points. Their return is crucial for TNT because they will face the top-seeded Magnolia team. The coach of the team is worried yet hopeful for players' comeback for crucial games coming up ahead.

Jojo Lastimosa said in a media chat after the victory over Phoenix “Our losses, other than Meralco, we’ve been competing. Even the All-Filipino [roster] against Ginebra, we competed. And, that’s one thing that was consistent this season, is that we were not out of games.”

“It just so happened that since we did not have the lineup that we wanted, towards the end, we just could not do enough,” He added.

Hollis-Jefferson will miss a few matches due to injury

Tropang Giga had to switch their foreign players twice this season. They started with Quincy Miller, but then they brought in Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. Unfortunately, Hollis-Jefferson got injured during a game in the East Asia Super League. So, his brother, Rahlir, joined the team.

Apart from Pogoy and Castro, they also missed Mikey Williams. His contract ended in November. Despite these challenges, TNT won five games out of six. Now, with most of their players back, Tropang Giga will try to beat Magnolia, who has a strong position in the playoffs.

The head coach of TNT, Jojo Lastimosa said, “It’s something that we addressed, and now with Pogoy here, I’m hoping that we can have enough guys to perform down the stretch.”

Arvin Tolentino missed out on a crucial game against NorthPort due to a Knee Injury

PBA Injury Update for Different Players in Season 2023-24

Arvin Tolentino was disappointed about not being able to play in NorthPort's crucial game last Friday because of a knee PBA injury that was still bothering him.

Without Tolentino on the court, NorthPort struggled and lost 106-93 to Barangay Ginebra in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals. Alvin Tolentino said in an interview;

“I have a Patellofemoral knee pain. I felt it during our last game against Ginebra, Actually, I was already feeling the pain during the Asian Games. But in that last game, the pain didn’t subside and the level of pain was 10/10 so I went to the doctor and that was the finding.”

Tolentino, who's having a standout season, mentioned he would've pushed himself to play if NorthPort had forced a decisive game against Ginebra.

Fortunately, Tolentino's knee structure is okay, and he only needs rehabilitation, no surgery is required. He expressed that he would've been ready to play if there was another game.

Despite missing out on the playoffs, Tolentino, 28 years old, had an impressive run in the Commissioner’s Cup. He led all local players in scoring with an average of 22.36 points per game, putting himself among the top players of the conference, even though it wasn't his main goal.

“I’m a bit happy to be included in the top players and performers of this conference but we lost today and we didn’t make the semis so that’s nothing. My personal goal is to really reach the semis and from there see what happens but it is what it is.”

San Miguel will be without one of their important players for the rest of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals because of an injury.

According to a recent PBA Injury, Terrence Romeo was spotted with a cast on his left ankle before Game 4 of the Finals. He "re-sprained" his left ankle during Game 2, and it's uncertain if he'll be able to play again in the series, even if it goes to the final game. Terrence Romeo said in an interview with a media platform;

“It hurt even more so I couldn’t play my game if I’m not a hundred percent so I might as well [sit]. My doctor gave me 10 days to fully heal because I was really trying to return right away but I forced it and it just got worse so my goal now is to just fully heal.”

The agile guard missed the PBA semifinals because of the same ankle injury he got during practice last month.

Romeo got injured while doing extra drills before the series against Ginebra. He felt something "pop" in his foot during a move.

"I was doing extra work after practice, and during one of my drills, I sprained my ankle after making a move. My shoes got stuck, and I heard something pop. I tried to ice it and rest for two days, but it didn't improve," said Romeo in Filipino a few weeks ago.

Romeo will be on the bench, wearing regular clothes, as San Miguel aims to finish off Magnolia in the PBA Finals. Depending on Friday night's results, the Beermen could win the championship as early as Sunday. If you want to follow the latest news, click PBA News 2024.
