I heard Mr. Gino Rufino, one of the court side reporters of the PBA said a while ago after Ginebra lost to Petron, that JayJay "Mr. Fast" Helterbrand will again be out for Ginebra because of Pneumonia. Pneumonia is a lung infection. Usually the lungs is filled with a certain liquid and it takes time for it to be fully removed. Helterbrand is in a hospital right now consulting a doctor. For sure he will receive some medical treatments and hopefully he can recover fast.
I found an informative piece of article from www.update.com, that gives us an idea on how many days or how long does it take for a person to recover from Pneumonia. It states:
A person with pneumonia usually begins to improve after three to five days of antibiotic treatment. Improvement may be defined as feeling better or having fewer symptoms, such as cough and fever. Fatigue and a persistent, but milder, cough can last for up to one month, although most people are able to resume their usual activities within seven days. Patients treated in the hospital may require three weeks or more to resume normal activities.
Let's say that Helterbrand we'll be out for 5 days. He may be back on Friday if he'll get okay fast. They will face the Meralco Bolts on Friday. Hopefully he'll be okay by that time. Get well soon Jay Jay. Ginebra needs you against Sol Mercado.
