Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netSan Miguel Beer’s starting guard Alex Cabagnot is expected to be out for three to four weeks due to a foot injury, according to his head coach Leo Austria.Cabagnot missed the Beermen’s game against GlobalPort on Wednesday and most likely his team’s next three games due to a partial tear in his right foot.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES “He just need to rest and I think that because of his work ethic, it would be easy for him to get back into shape,” he said.“Right now, he’s still working out so that he’ll be able to sustain his conditioning. We want to give him rest because we don’t want to aggravate his situation right now.”Brian Heruela filled in for Cabagnot and had his best game yet as a member of the Beermen, finishing with 17 points, five assists and six steals in 23 minutes off the bench.“We know that Brian can do that. He’s capable of playing huge for us and he showed it tonight,”said SMB swingman Marcio Lassiter.“Alex is definitely a big part of the team and we’re going to miss him but at the same time, next guy has to step up and it’s not just going to be one guy coming off the bench, we have multiple guys capable of stepping up for us,” Lassiter, who also had 17 points, added.ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Globe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH MOST READ Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Fajardo, Heruela lead San Miguel rally to fend off GlobalPort Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
