Jayson Castro, Troy Rosario return for Gilas in matchup with Iran

Jayson Castro and Troy Rosario will return to the Gilas Pilipinas lineup against Iran in the fifth window of the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers on Monday.

The two will suit up for the national team after serving a three-game suspension handed down by FIBA after the Gilas-Australia brawl in July.

Also included in the 12-man lineup against the Iranians are June Mar Fajardo, Japeth Aguilar, Beau Belga, Marcio Lassiter, Gabe Norwood, LA Tenorio, Scottie Thompson, Matthew Wright and Arwind Santos.

Christian Standhardinger, meanwhile, will replace Stanley Pringle -- who led Gilas in points in the loss to Kazakhstan -- as the team's naturalized player.

Gilas opened their campaign in the fifth window with a stunning 92-88 loss to the Kazakhs who shot impressively from beyond the arc.

The Philippines is currently holding a 5-4 win-loss record in Group F.
