Aguilar, Wong to pay 20K each, ordered to undergo 14-day quarantine
Fines and disciplinary actions were given to Ginebra star Japeth Aguilar and Rain or Shine rookie Adrian Wong for playing five-on-five scrimmage, despite the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Disease (IATF-EID) not allowing contact sports based on the imposed community quarantine.
PBA commissioner Willie Marcial each fined Aguilar and Wong P20,000 each, and told to undergo swab testing and 14-day quarantine before taking another confirmatory test in order to get a clearance to play.
Both players are also required to serve a 30-hour community service.
A photo of Wong and Aguilar playing playing five-on five basketball with Thirdy Ravena and Isaac Go in Greenhills, San Juan went viral on social media, which prompted Marcial to set up a meeting with the two aforementioned PBA players.
Meanwhile, the Columbian Dyip rookie Go is clear from any penalties, since he is still on loan the Gilas Pilipinas pool.
