MANILA, Philippines — Indonesia Warriors backup point guard Jerick Cañada is questionable for Game 3 of the 2013 Asean Basketball League (ABL) set on Wednesday in Jakarta.

Cañada hurt his left knee early in the fourth quarter of Game 2 where the San Miguel Beermen won, 66-65, to take a commanding 2-0 lead in their best-of-five series Sunday.


“I really don’t know if he will be able to compete for the next game or for the rest of the series. We’ll see,” said Warriors head coach Todd Purves moments after his team’s stinging loss on a game-winner by Beermen import Brian Williams off the inbound.


Purves also said that Cañada along with starter John Smith, who sprained his ankle with under 35 ticks left, were taken to the hospital after the game to get checked. Smith missed all of his seven attempts from the field and went scoreless in 18 minutes of play.

Cañada provided a boost off the bench as he finished with 11 points on three-of-four shooting from downtown to go along with two rebounds and two steals before the injury with still over seven minutes remaining.
