Kelly Nabong will not play for Meralco on Tuesday for Game 2 of its 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals series against Star.

Bolts team manager Paolo Trillo relayed that the fifth-year center has been indefinitely suspended by the team after his brush with assistant coach Jimmy Alapag late in Game 1 last Sunday.

“Kelly Nabong is suspended indefinitely for conduct unbecoming of a PBA player and for conduct detrimental to the team,” the executive shared in a statement.

FEATURED STORIES

Nabong figured in an verbal spat against Alapag last Sunday. The two needed to separated in the Meralco bench.

Frustrated, the bruiser was seen tearing his jersey as he sat at the far end of the bench at Alonte Sports Arena in Biñan, Laguna before quickly making his exit after the Bolts pulled off the 72-66 victory against the Hotshots.

The Fil-Am center was also the first man out of the Meralco dugout.

The Bolts shoot for a 2-0 lead against Star later today at Sta. Rosa Multipurpose Complex in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
