MANILA, Philippines — Dealing with injuries, TNT stars Jayson Castro and Ray Parks are likely to miss Game 5 of the PBA Philippine Cup Finals on Wednesday night.

Team manager Gabby Cui said Castro and Parks are both “doubtful” as the Tropang Giga hope to stay alive against the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings.


Castro played only 17 minutes after hurting his left knee in Game 4 last Sunday.

Parks, meanwhile, hasn’t played since the series opener due to a calf strain.


Despite possibly being severely undermanned, TNT isn’t planning on making it easy for Ginebra.

“We have to show that we want it more than them. That’s the situation, back against the wall, so you just to play through it,” TNT coach Bong Ravena said in Filipino.

Roger Pogoy will have to carry much of the offensive load anew for the injury-depleted Tropang Giga. He had a game-high 34 points in a 98-88 loss in Game 4.
