MANILA -- Rain or Shine's James Yap will have to sit out for at least 2 weeks after being hobbled by a groin injury.

The 2-time Most Valuable Player hurt his groin again during their 69-68 defeat to Magnolia last week.

"He's out for at least two weeks yata," Rain or Shine coach Caloy Garcia told sports website Spin.

Yap felt pain in his groin following a shot against Magnolia import Romeo Travis. He was later taken out of the game.

"Hindi niya na raw kaya. Masakit daw. So we didn't want to gamble with that," said Garcia.

Yap had the same injury in the PBA Commissioner's Cup when he missed the entire playoffs.
