The PBA has postponed the second game of its Saturday, September 4 double-header schedule between the San Miguel Beermen and the Alaska Aces due to health and safety protocols enforced at the DHVSU Gym in Bacolor, Pampanga.
This is the first postponement since the NorthPort Batang Pier were left out of the week’s schedule entirely for the same protocol-related reason.
The league bulletin did not mention whether or not there were positive COVID-19 cases between the two teams, and if further contact tracing will be needed for their previous opponents.
For now, the first game between the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters and the NLEX Road Warriors will proceed as scheduled, and will instead take the 4:35 pm slot vacated by Alaska and San Miguel.
The Beermen last faced the now red-hot Terrafirma Dyip on Wednesday, September 1, where they lost in a massive overtime upset, 110-104, as the Dyip were playing without top picks Joshua Munzon and Roosevelt Adams.
Meanwhile, the Aces last played on Thursday, September 4, in an 84-74 loss against the Road Warriors, who are still playing this Saturday afternoon. – Rappler.com
