JunMar Fajardo never really had a chance to unleash his full potential due to injury
Many questions why JunMar Fajardo is still part of the National roster even though he is injured?
The simple answer is hope. We are all hoping that he would still be able to play and frankly, we never really had any choice because JunMar is the best big man that we have in the country right now.
Although Junmar has been with the team for awhile, he never had a chance to mesh in real time with the Gilas Pilipinas in Lebanon after missing three games and only playing 6 minutes in his sole game so far, which unfortunately also became the first loss of Gilas Pilipinas.
On his first minute playing against Korea, he immediately turned the ball over and was obvious that he again, is still getting acclimated to game speed. The big man went on to score 2 points while grabbing 4 rebounds and 3 personal fouls.
Injury is a part of the game. The only question that we have is, do you think we could have replaced him instead?
