MANILA--For the third time in four nights, the PBA had to postpone a game.

"Pending IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force) approval," the league called off the scheduled Wednesday game between Blackwater and Magnolia as part of the precautionary measures following the suspected COVID-19 cases inside the Angeles bubble last week.

Although the Elite who was initially tested positive for the virus finally got a negative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction result, the PBA wants to make sure.

This is the second Blackwater game that was postponed including its scheduled Sunday game against Rain Or Shine.

On the other hand, the other game for Wednesday night, the nightcap between Meralco and San Miguel, will proceed as scheduled.
