JERSEY CITY, New Jersey – Dominican Republic, Gilas Pilipinas’ first-round opponent, gained a lot of momentum after three-time NBA All-Star Karl Anthony-Towns finally joined them in their preparation for the 2023 FIBA World Cup.
Gilas has a difficult task against the Dominican Republic under Karl Anthony-Towns.
After Chris Duarte of the Sacramento Kings and Al Horford of the Boston Celtics opted to withdraw from the competition, Towns provides the Dominican Republic with the much-needed NBA star power.
The team’s opponents on August 18 and August 19 are the NBA’s top-ranked Spain and Canada, respectively. The 27-year-old Towns joined the rest of the squad in Granada, Spain. The Dominican Republic will finish up its practice on August 22 against Egypt before flying to Manila.
After losing their first two exhibition games, 93-86 to Puerto Rico and 74-69 to Latvia, who will also be without their star big man Kristaps Porzingis, the arrival of the Minnesota Timberwolves star bolstered the Dominicans’ spirits.
The freshly acquired Celtics player Porzingis revealed on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time) that he will miss the competition because of plantar fasciitis.
”It is painful, and I feel very responsible to both myself and the Latvian national team’s supporters, but I have decided not to participate in the World Cup, Porzingis said in a statement. “The plantar fasciitis of my foot prevents me from being on the pitch in full [capacity] even after several weeks of recovery and a repeat MRI examination.”
The 7-foot-3 Porzingis said that the Celtics and the coaching and medical staff for the Latvian national team made the choice together.
“Such a decision is not easy to make, but I promise that I will be there and support the team as much as I can,” Porzingis stated.
The former NBA All-Star is the latest big name to withdraw from the competition.
Serbian player Nikola Jokic, a two-time NBA MVP, asked to be excused from the game after the Denver Nuggets had just finished an illustrious championship run. Giannis Antetokounmpo, a “Greek Freak” who is still recuperating from surgery on his left knee, concurred. The top overall choice in the NBA, Victor Wembanyama, also declined to play for France this time around in order to concentrate on getting ready for his rookie campaign. The top members of Team USA chose to compete in the Olympics in Paris over the World Cup in Manila.
But not Towns, who will participate despite having just finished a season marred by injuries and a 10-year hiatus from international competition.
Towns told ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, “There were many factors that went into the decision.
“The time is appropriate. Due to the injury, I didn’t subject my body to as much strain during the previous season. I feel fantastic right now. I feel completely normal and like myself again. The time is ideal for me to focus on various aspects of my game. And I felt compelled to do it in light of my mother’s passing.
The stretch big for the Timberwolves will devote this competition to his mother Jacqueline Cruz-Towns, who passed away in 2020 as a result of complications from the coronavirus. Towns’ mother is the source of his Dominican ancestry.
Towns’ presence provides the Dominicans a strong chance in Group A and seriously jeopardizes Gilas’ chances of moving on to the next round.
10 in the world Italy will easily win their group, with Gilas, Town’s Dominican Republic, and Angola vying for second place.
