A hurting Terrence Romeo sends his regards to his Gilas Pilipinas brothers set to compete against Japan Friday to start the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Romeo says he has the national team in his prayers while he's not physically able to compete for the time being.

"Ngayon mga brother hindi niyo man ako kasama lumalaban diyan, lagi kayo kasama sa mga dasal ko, yun lang muna maitu-tulong ko sa ngayon," he said.

Romeo is out for the first window of the Asian Qualifiers, a road game against Japan and a home game against Chinese Taipei on November 27, as he deals with a knee injury.

However, he is part of the Gilas pool and is expected to be back in harness once he's 100 percent healthy.

Romeo has been a revelation for the national team this year, emerging as the leading scorer for Gilas Pilipinas in the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup.

Gusto ko lang po sagutin sa mga nag tatanong kung bakit hindi ako nakasama sa Gilas; injured po ako at kailangan ko mag pahinga at therapy. Gusto ko rin sabihin at ipaalam sainyo na wala pong makakapigil sakin sa pag lalaro para sa bayan maliban sa injury, at kay God. Alam po yan ng family ko at lahat ng taong nakakakilala sakin, malaki ang utang na loob ko sa ng Gilas dahil dito ako mas naging disiplinado at dito napabilis ang pag mamature ko sa basketball at dito rin na buo yung samahan namen, hindi lang bilang teammates kundi bilang mag kakaibigan, mag kakapatid at isang family na handang lumaban para sa isat isa. Ngayon mga brother hindi niyo man ako kasama lumaban dyan lagi kayo kasama sa mga dasal ko, yun lang muna maitutulong ko sa ngayon at kagaya ng sinabi ko kay Coach Chot nung nag paalam ako, hindi po ito yung huling pag kakataon na mag lalaro ako para sa bayan. Pag 100% na ako mag ta try out ulit ako at kung deserving parin ako by that time, buong PUSO parin ako na mag lalaro para sa bansa. Sa mga brothers ko, kuya at mga pre, alam ko napakahirap mag laro pag kalaban mo yung buong crowd. wala kayong ibang titingnan or papakinggan kundi ang coaches naten at kayong twelve na mag ti-teammates dahil kayo-kayo ang mag tutulungan(mag tulungan kayo),kumuha kayo ng lakas sa bawat isa at mag laro kayo para isat-isa higit sa lahat alay naten to sa lahat ng mga kababayan naten sumusuporta lalo na kay God🙏👆🏻😊 Goodluck guys!! Enjoy the game!!! Missyou guys!! God bless!!
