ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal — Star guard Stanley Pringle was out of Northport’s first win in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

Pringle was in uniform and present at the Ynares Center here Wednesday but he didn’t see action as he was still recovering from surgery to remove bone spurs in his foot.

Stanley expected to return for the Batang Pier’s next game Saturday but he’ll see how he feels.

The Northport guard says he’s about at 80 percent for the moment.

“I’m feeling good, I’m already running. I think yesterday I’ve been running full speed. I’m just trying to work on the endurance right now. I got about 2-3 bone spurs removed about four weeks ago,” Pringle said.

“I’m about 80 percent right now. I’ll see how it is Saturday,” he added.

Pringle revealed that it’s not his first time to deal with bone spurs though this latest one started to cause trouble towards the end of the Philippine Cup.

“For bone spurs this is about the third time actually,” Pringle said.

“Nothing new. I’m not even worried about it, I’m just waiting for my endurance to come back and I’m ready to go,” he added.
