Chris Ross is back in town and just in time for the PBA bubble in Clark, Pampanga which is set to tip-off on October 11.
The 35-year old Fil-Am arrived a few days ago from the US and has already tested negative for COVID-19.
“Chris Ross is already here a few days ago. Before taking the flight (to the Philippines), nag-negative na siya sa swab (testing) niya. Pagdating dito, negative din yung swab niya,” bared San Miguel coach Leo Austria.
“I think he’s ok. He spent a few weeks sa States to tend to family matters. I’m happy that he’s already here in time for the bubble,” he added.
The Beermen are set to depart for the bubble on Tuesday, September 29 along with the players and staff of Brgy. Ginebra, NLEX, Alaska, Rain or Shine, Blackwater and NorthPort.
Upon arrival, teams will undergo swab tests and will then be required undergo a 24-hour quarantine inside their hotel rooms. Teams with negative COVID-19 test results can then begin their 5-on-5 scrimmages at the Angeles University Foundation gym.
The Beermen carry a 1-0 record going into the restart and have their sights set on six straight Philippine Cup titles.
