Troy Rosario showed no signs of serious injury after the TNT forward suffered a nasty fall in their game against Phoenix Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena.

Rosario, though, suffered a wound on his chin that needed stitches.


“He’s okay. These are good signs, no fracture or dislocation,” said TNT coach Nash Racela in Filipino. “There’s a big wound, and the doctors will just observe him because he really fell hard.”
