Jeremiah Gray possibly out for PBA Season 48

Jeremiah Gray’s blossoming career has suffered another significant setback.

The 26-year-old winger has been diagnosed with a devastating ‘triple tear,’ resulting from injuries to his anterior cruciate (ACL), medial collateral (MCL), and posterior cruciate (PCL) ligaments. Gray is scheduled to undergo surgery later this month.

Initially, Gray’s injury was diagnosed as a dislocation of his right knee. Due to the concomitant swelling, however, a comprehensive MRI could not be performed.

The previous week, Gray and Brgy. Ginebra both received the unfortunate news.

On July 30, during the Gin Kings’ final game in the PBA on Tour, Gray attempted a fastbreak layup with just 22 seconds remaining in the third quarter. He was unable to elevate as he approached the basket despite negligible contact from NLEX forward Anthony Semerad.

The 6-foot-5 Fil-Am, who was taken by Terrafirma with second overall pick in the 2022 PBA Draft, had a promising preseason, averaging 14.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 1.0 steal per game.

This is Gray’s second bout with an ACL injury. The first instance happened when he was still playing for TNT in the league’s 3×3 tournament.

Typically, injuries of this nature require 10 to 12 months of rehabilitation.
