MANILA, Philippines—Defending champion Barangay Ginebra dug deep into its roster following Scottie Thompson’s relegation into the injury list two days before its final game in elimination round of the 2021 PBA Philippine Cup.

The Kings thus re-activated shooting guard Jeff Chan to replace Thompson in the lineup.

Ginebra, however, is in a bind as the team sits at the precarious eighth seed with a 4-6 record.

Thompson, who was put on the injury list due to the league’s safety protocols, is the second Gin King this conference to go down due to health reasons after power forward Japeth Aguilar sprained an MCL forcing him to miss Ginebra’s past two games.

Chan’s re-activation, however, meant that club legend Mark Caguioa is now an unrestricted free agent.

Caguioa, who was initially on the team’s injury list, won nine titles with Ginebra, was a three-time Best Player of the Conference, and was the 2012 MVP.
