BATANG Gilas standout Migs Pascual is taking his time to fully recuperate from groin and hip strain before plunging back to action to help La Salle’s high school basketball team in the UAAP.
But the La Salle standout is now getting better and will be back anytime soon.
“As of now, therapy, gym, and skills workout pa lang ang ginagawa ko para hindi mawala sa timing and laging prepared,” Pascual wrote in an exclusive online interview with FOX PH. “Tuloy pa rin therapy ko and extra work.”
Pascual’s only regret, however, was not been able to help out his team, particularly in its latest loss against University of the Philippines.
“Medyo nakaka-frustrate, pero bad timing lang po talaga yung injury ko. Tinutulungan ko po yung teammates ko sa bench and I lead na lang sila para kung ano makabuti sa team.”
Pascual said he had already talked to his dad and they’ve both agreed that it’s best to return in 100-percent condition than force himself to play.
“Gusto ko maglaro this round. Pero sabi nga po ng daddy ko and ibang tao na nakakausap ko, long term yung tinitingan namin. Ayoko rin po kasi maglaro kung hindi po 100%. But I’m getting better and close to full recovery,” added Pascual.
