Hamstring injury sidelines San Miguel’s Alex Cabagnot
MANILA, Philippines—San Miguel point guard Alex Cabagnot is out indefinitely after suffering a hamstring injury in the Beermen’s previous game in the PBA Philippine Cup against Columbian.
Cabagnot said on Sunday that his left hamstring has been bothering him for a couple of weeks and it only got worse in the Beermen’s 124-118 loss to the Dyip on Friday.
“I hurt my hamstring last game when I dove on the floor but we were trying to catch up so you have to try anything to win the game,” said Cabagnot after the Beermen’s recent 99-91 win over Barangay Ginebra at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
“Whatever happens I just did what I had to do and the worst consequence was I hurt my hamstring and that has been bothering me for the past two weeks, hopefully and God willing I’ll be back soon.”
Cabagnot sat out the game against the Gin Kings in what he described as a great bounce back win for the Beermen.
The 36-year-old Cabagnot didn’t sit with the team on the bench and instead joined the team officials a little further up behind the Beermen to better get a view of the action.
“It was a good response by the team, but we’re just at 1-1 so we shouldn’t celebrate,” said Cabagnot. “We should be as level headed as possible because the season is far from over and the conference has just started.”
“We have to work hard and do the things we need to do.”
