Rico Maierhofer also known as the kite because of his bat-like wing span and leaping ability will be out for 2 more months for the B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados. He will miss the whole PBA 2011 Governor's Cup because he has not yet recovered from his knee injury. Snow Badua tweeted the sad news. He said:
B-Meg will miss the 10.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.2 steals and 1.7 blocks per game coming from Rico Maierhofer. They will also lose an important player on the power forward position. We all know that they have been plagued by so many injuries. But on the lighter side, Rico promised to be back in the All-Filipino Cup on September 25, 2011.
