PBA Postpones Blackwater-Magnolia Game


Pending the approval from the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, the PBA has postponed the scheduled match between Blackwater Elite and Magnolia Hotshots this afternoon.

In a statement on Wednesday, the league said that the scheduled Elite and Hotshots game will be rescheduled at a later date.

The second game slated between Meralco Bolts and defending champions San Miguel Beermen, however, shall continue as scheduled at 6:45 p.m. tonight.

This was the second Blackwater match that was postponed by the league after one of its players was suspected to contract coronavirus disease 2019. The said player has since been tested negative.

The PBA earlier postponed Elite’s match against Rain or Shine Elasto Painters last Sunday, while it also delayed the TNT Tropang Giga and NorthPort Batang Pier last Monday as TNT last game last week was against Blackwater.
