    IT hasn’t even started, yet Barangay Ginebra’ campaign in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup already hit a snag as one of its top playmakers could miss the team’s conference debut against Phoenix on Saturday in Davao.

    Sol Mercado is listed as questionable due to a minor knee injury he sustained in a collision with Mark Caguioa in practice on Wednesday.

    “He tweaked his knee yesterday in practice,” Gin Kings coach Tim Cone said after the team's training on Thursday.

    Tim Cone plans to activate Greg Slaughter for Commissioner’s Cup playoffs

    After Ginebra secured a quarterfinals berth in the Commissioner’s Cup on Sunday, multi-titled head coach Tim Cone said the Kings will likely activate slotman Greg Slaughter come playoff time.

    “We will most likely activate him (Slaughter) for the playoffs,” declared Cone, as his Gin Kings roared to a 107-99 win against sister team San Miguel for their sixth win in 8 starts.

    But the American mentor said the 6-11 Slaughter will probably serve more as warm body for the moment while he continues to rehabilitate his knee after tearing his ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) last year.

    “We’ll put him on the roster and activate him, but we don’t expect him to play,” he quickly added. “We’ll put him there just in case, make everybody get scared.

    Cone said the Fil-Am big man has yet to rejoin the team’s practice as he continues to attend to his rehab session religiously. – FOX Sports Asia

    Greg Slaughter says knee 'stronger than before' as he joins first Ginebra practice since injury

    EXCITEMENT filled the air as Greg Slaughter showed up in his first official practice for Barangay Ginebra on Thursday after being sidelined for eight months recovering from a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in his right knee.

    The Gin Kings star slotman has been undergoing rehabilitation following surgery on the knee he injured last September – in his first game back after being out for three months due to a different injury.

    Slaughter, who turned 29 last Friday, finally attended his first training session on Thursday, joining offensive simulations apart from shooting drills.

    “It was exciting even though it was just five-on-zero, just to be out there with my team again, pass the ball around, it’s been a while,” Slaughter said in a chat with after practice on the eve of the Gin Kings’ PBA Commissioner’s Cup matchup against Blackwater in Biñan.

    Slaughter was healthy enough to even throw down some dunks.

    “I can dunk; I’ve already been working on jumping on my rehab, so dunking, that’s not hard to do a straight-up jump,” the 6-foot-11 big man said. “But I still have a little bit more things to cover.”

    “I’m still working out more, trying to get a lot of extra workouts in, because right now, it’s all about getting my leg strong,” he added. “It’s healed. It’s even stronger than before – my knee. I just need to get it as strong as my left leg. My left leg’s always been stronger. I just got to catch my right leg up to it. And the progress is going well."
