Sentinels have announced the return of Tyson ‘TenZ’ Ngo to its Valorant team’s starting lineup after the player missed three weeks of action due to illness and a finger injury.

TenZ played no part in the team’s last four games in VCT Americas due to illness and a finger injury. During that time, Sentinels fielded their substitute player, Jimmy ‘Marved’ Nguyen, changing some of the team’s roles to accommodate the change.

The former OpTic Gaming player helped Sentinels to its first win in the league since its opening match, but the squad did not do much beyond that and currently has a 2-5 record.

Sentinels are in danger of missing out on the VCT Americas playoffs and will need to win their next two matches to have a chance at making the next stage of the competition.

In a short 15-second video, Sentinels head coach Adam ‘kaplan’ Kaplan addressed Sentinels’ fans to confirm that their star player would be returning to the starting lineup.

Sentinels will also continue to field Marved and instead sub out their IGL, Rory ‘dephh’ Jackson, for TenZ, according to George Geddes, who added that the former XSET player is on his way out of the organization.

Fans will get to see TenZ return to the starting lineup as Sentinels take on KRÜ Esports on May 14 in their Week 7 matchup.

The Sentinels roster is as follows:

  • Tyson ‘TenZ’ Ngo
  • Jimmy ‘Marved’ Nguyen
  • Bryan ‘pANcada’ Luna
  • Gustavo ‘Sacy’ Rossi
  • Zachary ‘zekken’ Patrone
