MANILA, Philippines – PBA also decides to postpone Monday’s TNT and NorthPort game after Blackwater player COVID-19 was initially found to be positive.
Despite the fact that the said player landed, the league still decided to postpone the game to a later time negative results on his most recent Monday RT-PCR test and an antigen test performed the day before. Blackwater played TNT last Thursday.
Meanwhile, the main game, which will feature Phoenix, whose star striker Calvin Abueva will recover, and NLEX will continue as scheduled at 6:45 p.m.

The PBA also postponed Blackwater and Rain or Shine on Sunday.
Abueva, 32, a native of Pampanga City, Angela, did not play because it was suspended indefinitely in June last year.
Thanks to Matthew Wright’s horrific shot and the strong presence of Jason Perkins, the Fuel Masters survived a bit in the absence of Abueva.
They are currently in fourth place in the three-way, and 3-2 in the Philippine Cup.
