B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados won over the Philippine Patriots in a practice game but lost Rafi Reavis to a fractured middle right finger and will be out at least 3 months.
Reavis will now join Kerby Raymudo, Marc Pingris and James Yap in the sidelines as Derby Ace tries to defend their Philippine Cup title.
Get well Rafi Reavis!

After winning the Best Player of the Conference and Finals MVP in the Philippine Cup, James Yap has a big chance to gain his second Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award this year despite the Derby Ace Llamados (Purefoods TJ Giants) losing in the semifinals vs San Miguel.
While Kerby Raymundo was nursing with an injury, James Yap led almost all the games of the Llamados as their leading scorer among all the locals. Even though there were a lot of distractions physically and emotionally for James, he almost carried the team to another finals appearance. Yap averaged 23PPG against Rain or Shine in the Quarterfinals and 16.33PPG against the tight defense of San Miguel in the Semifinals.
