Troy Rosario stretchered off after hard fall
TNT forward Troy Rosario was stretchered off the floor after landing hard on his chin early in the fourth quarter of the KaTropa’s game against the Phoenix Fuel Masters Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena.
The awkward spill was inadvertently caused by Phoenix rookie Jason Perkins, who tripped on his own foot and slid just underneath the basket where Rosario landed after contesting a layup.

The game was momentarily stopped as Rosario tried to gather himself but he ultimately needed to be wheeled out of the court on a stretcher. He will be taken to the Makati Medical Center for treatment and evaluation.
Rosario had four points, eight rebounds and one steal in 21 minutes before getting hurt at the 11:36 mark with TNT ahead, 61-58.
