PASIG--Coach Yeng Guiao said that Andray Blatche will become busier in practice ahead of Gilas Pilipinas Men's stint in the FIBA World Cup.

It will begin with the former NBA veteran joining NLEX in practice.

"He'll start everyday practice tomorrow morning," Guiao said on Monday night after the Gilas practice at the Meralco Gym.

He then added, "In the afternoon, he will have a session with a trainer [for] individual conditioning,"

Guiao also bared that Blatche will train twice-a-day with the Road Warriors and the Nationals during the latter's training.

"Pagka Monday and Thursday, NLEX in the morning; Gilas in the evening," Guiao further said.

Blatche's own grind will become even more rigorous come next week as Gilas Men will start their daily practice.

"Kailangan na rin siyang makapag-up-and-down and offense-defense," Guiao bared the rationale behind the more intense build-up on Blatche.
