PASIG—Terrafirma's PBA on Tour win against TNT on Wednesday night came at a price when Kevin Ferrer exited the game just before halftime.

Ferrer hurt his foot while going for a rebound late in the second quarter of the showdown at the Ynares Sports Arena.

The injury was so painful that he was escorted out of the playing area by a stretcher.

An MRI result is expected to be released very soon, but Dyip coach John Cardel hinted Ferrer suffered a major injury on his Achilles tendon.

"May pumitik daw sa Achilles niya. Medyo delikado," Cardel said after the game.

It was a bitter end to what could have been a decent showing from Ferrer as he had seven points, three rebounds, and one assist in 19 minutes of play before he injured his Achilles.

"Sayang! Ang ganda pa naman ng laro niya kanina," Cardel continued, noting that Ferrer was making a return to the lineup after missing Terrafirma's last outing against Blackwater due to an ankle sprain.

If confirmed to be a rupture, Ferrer could be out for six months or probably longer, further adding to Terrafirma's injury situation, although Cardel is glad that JP Calvo also returned to action while Isaac Go continues to make strides after his ACL injury.

Still, Cardel hopes that a rupture can be ruled out.

"Sana hindi ganoon ka-serious," he said.
