MANILA--PBA commissioner Willie Marcial said that the players are one in saying that they want to go back to practice despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Marcial said it after he met with some of them--particularly the representatives sent by the 12 teams--in a briefing at the league office in Quezon City on Tuesday.

Marcial relayed to the players present the new training protocols the PBA will be imposing once the IATF gives the league the green light to resume training.

The said protocols were approved in the PBA board level and were already submitted to the IATF for approval.
