The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) is set to restart the stalled Governors’ Cup around the first week of February.
PBA commissioner Willie Marcial said the board of governors unanimously agreed to finally resume the season-ending conference next month under the home-venue-home setup recommended by the Games and Amusements Board.
“We all agreed to restart the conference. We’re thinking maybe around first week of February,” Marcial told Daily Tribune.
Since its last game on 26 December, the league has indefinitely suspended action due to the surge of Covid-19 cases right at the start of 2022.
Full-team practices were also halted as players are still limited to mere individual and small-group training.
Marcial said they are now seeking Metro Manila Development Authority’s approval to restart team scrimmages this week.
The league commissioner, however, noted that they are yet to choose between Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig and Smart Araneta Coliseum as the venue for the return of games.
