BIÑAN--A different Rain Or Shine lineup will be unveiled on Sunday night as the team takes on Kia as the PBA Governors' Cup resumes play at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.

While the Elasto Painters are without Gabe Norwood and Raymond Almazan, who are in Beirut with Gilas for the FIBA Asia Cup and will actually play Qatar later Sunday there, they will also play sans Jeff Chan and Mike Tolomia, who were sent to the Phoenix Fuel Masters and the Meralco Bolts respectively in separate trades on Monday.

Reinforcing Coach Caloy Garcia for their 4:30 p.m. matchup against the Picanto are Mark Borboran and Ed Daquioag, the players they got in return in those said trades.

Tolomia will have his Meralco debut right after the ROS-Kia game as the Norman Black-mentored squad takes on NLEX at 6:45 p.m.
