The NorthPort Batang Pier, PBA and Gilas Pilipinas lost one of their brightest young stars due to injury. After initial reports last night, NorthPort announced through their social media pages that Robert Bolick suffered a serious injury during their game against the San Miguel Beermen.
Bolick was one of the top rookies in the PBA this year. His fearless playing style and intense passion was something fans and opposing players took notice of. This conference, he was averaging nearly 13 points, five rebounds and six assists per game. He was also considered as one of the rookies vying for the Rookie of the Year award at the end of the season
Bolick will miss the end of the PBA season, the 2019 SEA Games, where he was part of the Gilas 3×3 Pool and most likely the start of the new PBA season.
