MANILA--Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is back!

TNT activated its resident import for its all-important Wednesday night EASL game against Anyang.

Hollis-Jefferson hurt his neck after a bad fall in the Tropang Giga's home win against the Taipei Fubon Braves on Dec. 20.

The injury's repercussions stretched to the PBA as he was ruled out for the rest of TNT's Commissioner's Cup campaign, prompting the team to replace him with his older brother Rahlir, who initially came on to be Quincy Miller's replacement for their EASL stint.

Hollis-Jefferson's return is timely as Calvin Oftana is not listed for the game. 

The Tropang Giga need to beat the Red Boosters soundly to keep their hopes of making the semifinals.

Anyang, which replaced Darryl Monroe with former Converge import Jamil Wilson, can clinch the Final Four spot outright with a road win.
