PBA has announced that its Wednesday’s game got canceled and several upcoming games.
Based on the league’s statement on Twitter, the PBA Board of Governors through the Office of the Commissioner has decided the March 11 games.
“In a special meeting held last night, March 10, the Philippine Basketball Association Board of Governors through the Office of the Commissioner, decided with prudence to cancel effective today March 11, its on-going PBA Philippine Cup and PBA D-League Aspirants Cup games and activities and PBA 3X3 inaugurals until further notice.”
“Considering the present situation surrounding COVID-19 and the Presidential declaration of Public Health Emergency, it is our paramount duty and responsibility to ensure the health and safety of our fans, players, teams, officials and staff.
“The league, however, will assess the effects of COVID-19 on a day-to-day basis guided by the parameters set by the DOH and WHO and will remain committed to conduct its games and activities in a safe and responsible manner for all its stakeholders.
Part of the canceled game is the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and the Blackwater Elite scheduled on Saturday in Balanga, Bataan.
That could be the first game of the Gin Kings after they won the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup and at the same time the first live-action of Elite’s second overall pick during the 2019 PBA (regular) Draft, the 6-foot-9 Maurice Shaw.
