PBA: Slaughter holds breath after latest injury scare

Greg Slaughter's latest injury scare comes with the worst timing.

In the fourth quarter of Ginebra's game against Northport Wednesday in the Governors' Cup, Slaughter tweaked his left ankle after falling on the Batang Pier's Sean Anthony following a rebound play.

Slaughter left the game and never returned.

Fortunately, the seven-footer walked off the floor on his own and was walking pretty well post game as he exited the arena.

"At least we survived a scary moment for Greg. We're worried about that—the way he fell. He's seven-feet tall. When a guy that tall falls like that the first thing you think is the injury," Ginebra head coach Tim Cone said of his prized center.

"They told me he could've came back into the game, so that's a good indication that it wasn't as bad as it might have looked. I hope he'll be fine for the national team," he added.

Greg himself is quite unsure of his ankle for now. He says it will have to wait for tomorrow.

One thing is for sure though, his ankle hurts.

"You can't really tell until the next day with these things," Slaughter said.

"Right now it kinda hurts, but hopefully it feels a lot better tomorrow," he added.
