“Prayers for our brother, Ranidel. On the way to the hospital now to have an MRI on his back after tweaking it and losing mobility. Let’s all pray for a good prognosis,” Reyes posted on his Instagram account.

Texters head coach Jong Uichico told INQUIRER.net that de Ocampo hurt his back while lifting weights.

“He hurt his back while lifting weights. Malalaman natin mamaya kung ano ang sabi ng doctor,” Uichico wrote in a text message. 

Chot Reyes, de Ocampo’s former Talk ‘N Text and national team coach, said that the Gilas Pilipinas mainstay has a herniated disc and will be out for six to eight weeks.

“No fracture. Herniated disc. No surgery required, but out for 6-8 weeks #PrayersforRDO,” Reyes posted on his Twitter account @coachot Sunday night.
