PBA postpones another game after COVID-19 scare

The PBA decided to postpone the Philippine Cup game between TNT and NorthPort scheduled on Monday, October 26, as a precautionary measure amid the coronavirus scare that rocked the league.

A referee and a player from Blackwater tested positive for the virus last week before their confirmatory antigen and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction tests yielded negative results.

This is the second time the PBA postponed a game in the season restart after pushing back the October 25 match between Blackwater and Rain or Shine.

Since TNT was the last team to face Blackwater, the PBA chose to reschedule its match against NorthPort. No new date has been set.

Meanwhile, the Phoenix-NLEX game scheduled on Monday will push through at 6:45 pm as Calvin Abueva makes his keenly awaited PBA return.

The PBA lifted its indefinite suspension on Abueva, who has not played in the league for more than a year. – Rappler.com
