MANILA—Gilas Pilipinas Men will have a light schedule for the November window of the FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers.

As revealed in the FIBA website on Saturday, Gilas Men will only have Thailand as their opponent in the November window happening at the Khalifa Sports City in Manama, Bahrain.

Both teams will meet twice, starting with a Nov. 27 meeting, which is actually the resumption of Gilas Men's supposed home game that was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

They will meet again on Nov. 30 just like the originally planned schedule.

However, Thailand will face Indonesia before that on Nov. 28, a day after the first Gilas Men-Thailand match.

This means Thailand, which will parade an all-pro lineup, will be playing three games in four days.

On the other hand, Indonesia has the least activity in the bubble with only the Thailand game to be played due to South Korea formally begging off from the bubble.
