MANILA--In accordance with the PBA's protocol for possibly resuming practice, the entire NLEX squad underwent testing for COVID-19.

On Thursday, all the Road Warriors from the players to the staff went the NLEX office in Quezon City to get tested for the said virus.
According to a team official, the club was also adhering to what Manny Pangilinan told all the teams under his umbrella that they should undergo testing.

The NLEX official revealed that the Meralco Bolts are already done with their own testing, while the TNT KaTropa will follow suit next week.

In the PBA board meeting on Wednesday, it was resolved that all players must undergo COVID-19 testing, and only those who are tested negative can start practicing again.
