For the second straight time, TNT will miss another vital cog on its bid to dethrone defending two-time champion San Miguel Beer.

Prized guard Jayson Castro, sidelined by a hamstring strain on his left leg, won’t suit up on Monday night when the KaTropa square off anew with the Beermen in a sudden-death showdown in their 2017 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals battle at the Mall of Asia Arena.

An unimpeachable source disclosed to FOX Sports on Monday afternoon that the 5-foot-11 Castro didn’t even participate in TNT’s practice session on Sunday as he needs “two to three weeks of rest” to recover from the injury that forced him straight to the dugout with seven minutes to play in the course of their 88-104 loss to SMB in Game 6 over the weekend. – FOX Sports Asia
