Mark Caguioa will visit his doctor on Monday to determine the status of his knee injury.
“We will know the timetable in my check up tomorrow. Right now, I’m entering the fourth week of my rehabilitation. So if it will be completed in six weeks or will be extended, that we have to find out tomorrow,” Caguioa told InterAKTV.
The heart and soul of the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel could only watch his team suffer its second straight defeat on Sunday night against Talk ‘N Text. This was after the Gin Kings strung up six wins.
The loss put Ginebra in danger of falling to the No. 7 spot, which would come with a twice-to-win disadvantage in the quarterfinals.
Despite Ginebra’s predicament, Caguioa said he would listen to his body instead of rushing back.
“If I can play, then I will play, but if I can’t, then I won’t risk it,” said Caguioa.
The league’s reigning Most Valuable Player added that he’s still waiting for a knee brace from the United States to help him during his recovery time.
