Salamat, Gilas Pilipinas! Pambansang pasasalamat sa Gilas Pilipinas – FIBA World Cup Celebration & Asian Games Send-off on September 17, 2014, 5pm at the Smart Araneta Coliseum (Beside Red Gate)
Meet the Gilas Pilipinas players before they go to Incheon, South Korea for the 2014 Asian Games.
According to Coach Chot Reyes via Twitter (@coachot), Andray Blatche is confirmed to be out of the Asian Games Roster due to the 3 year residency rule of the Olympic Council of Asia or OCA.
Four Gilas Pilipinas players suffered minor injuries in the 2014 FIBA World Cup and needs rest in preparation for the 2014 Asian Games which starts September 19, 2014 in Incheon, South Korea. Gilas Pilipinas practice starts September 12 in Manila.
Although it looks like Andray Blatche will not be able to suit up for Gilas Pilipinas in the Asian Games unless the Incheon Asian Games Organizing Committee or IAGOC changed their position before the start of the Tournament but nothing is final yet and we hope that with the help of FIBA, we will be able to convince IAGOC to let Blatche play.
