Terrafirma asks for prayers for Roider Cabrera's recovery after post-game collapse

The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) and Terrafirma Dyip management are asking for prayers after the report of 3x3 player Roider Cabrera's post-game collapse on Wednesday night.

League commissioner Willie Marcial made the request to the public in a statement on Thursday.

"Nalulungkot ang PBA sa mga hindi inaasahang pangyayari. Subalit naniniwala tayo na muling makakapaglaro si Roider sa tulong ng inyong mga dalangin," said Marcial.

Meanwhile Terrafirma board governor Bobby Rosales said Cabrera is "in the hospital, getting the best medical treatment and care possible," adding that the team is behind his full recovery.

"Let us continue to include Roider and his family in our prayers," Rosales said.

"Medical bulletins are given directly to his immediate family and we give them the respect and the discretion to whatever they want or may not want to share to the public," he added.

It was reported that Cabrera was rushed to the hospital after collapsing in the Terrafirma dugout shortly after their match against Barangay Ginebra in the second leg of the PBA 3x3 tournament. Terrafirma won the game, 19-17, with Cabrera making 11 points.

Terrafirma 3x3 will play their last match in the elimination round at 1 p.m. against the Limitless Appmasters, an affiliate of the Phoenix Fuelmasters. — LA, GMA News
