QUEZON CITY--Anthony Semerad could sit out for quite some time as Bong Ravena fears that he may have dislocated his left shoulder late in Game 1 of the PBA Commissioner's Cup between TNT and Ginebra.

"I think it's a broken shoulder," the KaTropa coach said after taking Game 1 over the Barangay at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Friday night.

While Ravena clarified that it was just his conjecture, observing Semerad pushed him to make the said claim.

"He cannot move it," Ravena continued.

Semerad was playing solidly for TNT prior to the said injury, making 17 points, two rebounds, and one assist.

However, he collided with Justin Brownlee in a battle for the loose ball with 39 seconds left in the game.

Grimacing in pain, Semerad left the game and eventually the venue quickly so the doctors can check out his injury.

All Ravena can do now is to hope that Semerad's injury is not as serious as he thinks.

"Hopefully it's not serious," Ravena further said. "I pray na minor lang sana."
