Jayson Castro

Jayson Castro will not be able to play for a few days and needs to rest due to an achilles injury, he also missed Gilas Pilipinas practice last night.

Get well Andray Blatche, Jayson Castro, Paul Lee and Marc Pingris

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.
