Warren Bonifacio Laments Injury Battle in Mapua Finals Defeat: NCAA
MAPUA forward Warren Bonifacio plays despite ankle injury.
Bonifacio played through ankle injury from the second round of the elimination.
“I have an injury in my right ankle. I have a hard time,” said Bonifacio.
“My ATFL (anterior talofibular ligament) and PTFL (posterior talofibular ligament) in my right ankle got torn.” added Bonifacio, who sustained the injury during practice.
Bonifacio finished with just four points and seven rebounds in his final game for the Cardinals.
Bonifacio made the Mythical Team averaging 10.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, helping Mapua claim the top seed.
Bonifacio could join the Magnolia Hotshots in the PBA after being taken in the fifth round by the franchise in last September’s draft once he completes his full recovery.
“Still no talk with coach Chito for now because I was focused on this series,” added Bonifacio.
