Tenorio enters bubble, ‘Iron Man’ streak at stake
MANILA, Philippines — Barangay Ginebra star LA Tenorio has arrived at Quest Hotel for the PBA bubble restart in Pampanga.
Tenorio made it to Mimosa Wednesday to join his teammates after missing the Gin Kings’ trip to Clark last Sept. 29.
But before anything else, Tenorio will have to stay in his room first and wait for the result of his swab test as part of the PBA’s health and safety protocols.
It also remains unclear if Tenorio would be able to suit up on Sunday when Ginebra takes on NLEX.
The 36-year-old point guard reportedly underwent laparoscopic surgery last week.
Tenorio, who holds the PBA record for consecutive games played with 641, hasn’t missed a game since being drafted in the league in 2006.
Ginebra forward Japeth Aguilar is expected to enter the bubble on Thursday.
