MANILA, Philippines — The NLEX Road Warriors are planning to hold their camp in Clark, Pampanga as early as Wednesday, head coach Yeng Guiao said on the team’s website on Tuesday.

NLEX had originally wanted to resume its practices at Epsilon Chi Center at University of the Philippines but the general community quarantine (GCQ) with stricter measures prevented it from pushing through.

The National Capital Region and its nearby provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna and Rizal were placed under GCQ with heightened restrictions last Saturday. Among those limitations is indoor sports remain prohibited.

“PBA just informed us we still cannot practice pending clarification from the DOH/IATF. So practice (in the NCR) are still suspended. We plan to go out of town by Wednesday or Thursday for practice in Clark,” said Guiao, who also serves as the team’s general manager.

Guiao said NLEX is eyeing a closed-circuit setup in Clark, although, the Road Warriors will likely remain in the city during the last week of May.

“If we are not allowed to practice in NCR this week, we’ll just go home every after practice. Last week of May, we will stay there for another week,” said Guiao, a former vice governor and representative of Pampanga.

NLEX’s sister team Meralco was the first team to resume training. The Bolts began their 10-day training camp at Laoag Centennial Arena in Ilocos Norte on Sunday.

TNT, which is also part of the MVP Group, will also set up a bubble camp in Laoag.
