We won’t be seeing Calvin Abueva on the court for a while.
Alaska Aces management decided to suspend “The Beast” for not reporting to the team for a week.
In a statement by owner William Uytengsu, he said that the suspension is “effective immediately.”
However, the star is allowed to suit up for Gilas Pilipinas if he gets the call up.
“The Alaska Aces have placed Calvin Abueva on indefinite suspension following his more than one week absence from practice and failing to advise the coaching staff and management of his whereabouts.
While we understand Calvin may be going through some troubling personal issues, it does not obviate his responsibility to his team. The suspension is effective immediately.
Alaska, however, will allow Abueva to play for Gilas if Coach Chot Reyes chooses to use him in the line up,” the statement read.
The Aces are currently on top of the Commissioner’s Cup standings with a 7-1 win-loss record.
