Rain or Shine swingman James Yap has been ruled out for the rest of the PBA Philippine Cup to recover from a lingering pulled calf muscle.

Elasto Painters coach Caloy Garcia said Yap decided to sit out the conference so the 2-time MVP doesn't aggravate the injury.

“Out na siya. Next conference na siya (lalaro),” Garcia said in an article posted on Spin.ph following Rain Or Shine's close 100-92 loss to Barangay Ginebra on Friday.

Rain Or Shine will welcome back playmaker Chris Tiu, though, in time for the team's best-of-3 series against Ginebra, which begin at Mall of Asia Arena on Monday.

Tiu was inactive the past 3 games due to an injured hamstring.
