ANTIPOLO CITY—June Mar Fajardo has been ruled out of returning to action for San Miguel Beer in its PBA Governors’ Cup semifinal series with Barangay Ginebra.

Fajardo showed up in the Beermen’s 121-103 loss at Ynares Center on Sunday here in street clothes, but coach Jorge Gallent said the visit was essentially to check the progress of his MCL injury.


“Wala yun (It’s nothing),” Gallent said. “I think he has a hard time putting his immobilizer.”


But Gallent added that Fajardo’s condition seems to be improving since going down with an injury in an game against Japan B.League side Ryukyu Golden Kings in the East Asia Super League Champions Week.

“I’m kind of happy that he is walking well,” Gallent also said.

San Miguel has played five games since Fajardo’s injury, and his absence has somewhat affected the Beermen in the series with the Gin Kings.

But Ginebra coach Tim Cone said his team wouldn’t up 2-0 if Fajardo was healthy.
