Despite getting ejected for apparently swinging his arm against Jonathan Uyloan late in Alaska's Game 4 loss against Rain Or Shine, Calvin Abueva was given the green light by Commissioner Chito Salud to play in Game 5.

Salud did not mete out a suspension on Abueva, but the latter was slapped with a PHP20,000 penalty for his action on Uyloan.

This is only the second sanction handed out to Abueva this season. The previous was a PHP1,000 fine for trash-talking.

Coach Alex Compton, however, hopes that Abueva will bounce back on Saturday.

Compton said, “Calvin has been great all season long and it has all originated from him. I’m sure he will be great again for the remaining games of the series.”
