Of course, CJ Cansino will have his mother by his side as he hopes for the best regarding his left knee injury
CJ Cansino fell and took time to get back up in the second quarter of University of Sto. Tomas’ matchup with the University of the Philippines on Saturday.
The Growling Tigers’ super rookie suffered an apparent left knee injury and had to be helped back to the locker room.
There, he stayed even after his teammates took the floor once more in the second half.

Not long after the game resumed, however, Cansino willed his way back to the baseline seats to watch his teammates try and rally around him.

It was apparent that the 19-year-old was still in pain as his left knee was heavily taped up.
And so, his mother sat beside him to help ease his pain.
Rowena Cansino remained with her son as he went back to the dugout and then to the hospital.
Here’s to hoping for the best for the Cansino family.
