Troy back in practice less than a week after nasty fall
Rosario, who had to be taken out of the MOA Arena via stretcher last Feb. 7 after falling chin first to the floor, says that his doctor already gave him the go signal to suit up once again.

After suffering a nasty fall against Phoenix last week, Troy Rosario is back in practice for Gilas Pilipinas.

However, the TNT forward was not a full participant Tuesday at the Meralco gym and was only seen joining the national team in shooting drills.

Rosario, who had to be taken out of the MOA Arena via stretcher last Feb. 7 after falling chin first to the floor, says that his doctor already gave him the go signal to suit up once again.

However, he still has to monitor his condition and was adviced not to go hard in practice.

"Okay na. Ano na lang, advice lang ng Neuro na light practice lang muna for three days tapos pakiramdaman lang muna," Rosario said.

"Alam naman nila [Gilas] yung sitwasyon so practice lang muna ako, shooting lang. Di pa ako yung mga [scrimmage] kasi anytime na mahilo ako talagang delikado daw eh," he added.

While he's no longer feeling dizzy, Rosario is still having a hard time with his jaw and his wrist.

Fortunately, extended time of rest will do the trick and he plans on attending all the daily Gilas practices.

But as for actually playing? It might take a little while longer.

"Ngayon wala na talaga [hilo]. Yung ano ko na lang, yung jaw na lang, nahihirapan ako ibukas eh tsaka yung wrist ko, ito yung pumalo talaga eh [sa sahig] kaya hirap ako tumira," Rosario said.

"Araw-araw ako pupunta ng practice, bukas may game kami [with TNT] pero 7 p.m. pa naman yun eh so baka pumunta muna ako dito tapos habol ako sa game para manood," he added.
