TNT KaTropa’s Troy Rosario suffered a nasty fall during the opening minutes of the 4th quarter of the team’s game against the Phoenix Fuel Masters, Wednesday night at the MOA Arena.

The 26-year old product of National University fell face first after Phoenix rookie Jason Perkins slipped under him after tripping off Kelly William’s foot.

Rosario laid on the court grasping his chin before team staff and medical personnel placed him on a stretcher and was taken by an ambulance to Makati Medical Center.

Rosario’s wife, Mich, posted an update on her twitter account regarding her husband’s condition.

Thank you to all the well wishers. Troy was cleared after undergoing Xray and CT scan. He had 4 stitches on his chin. But was advised to stay for a night for observation. 🙏🏻 #TYL

TNT coach Nash Racela said that the attending physician informed him that while initial tests showed no indication of serious injuries, the third-year pro still has to placed under observation as a precaution.

“Okay naman siya. Good signs, no fracture or dislocation. May wound lang na malaki. I-observe pa siya kasi ang lakas nung bagsak niya e,” said Racela.

As a result, Rosario is listed as doubtful for the team’s upcoming game against Brgy. Ginebra on Sunday, February 11 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Also in peril is his participation in the 2nd window of the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers. Rosario is part of the 14-man pool scheduled to depart soon for Melbourne, Australia to take on the Boomers. The game is set on February 22 before Gilas Pilipinas hosts Japan on February 25.
