NLEX Road Warriors Kevin Alas is set to return to the PBA floors as the five-year veteran was reported that he’s already healthy.
Actually, he’s about to make his first appearance after he suffered another setback last June when they played against the defending champion, the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok.
“Akala ko nga lalaro na ako ngayon, pero kinausap niya (Guiao) ako (last Saturday) na huwag na daw muna,” said Alas.
Yet, NLEX head coach Yeng Guiao postponed his return probably to avoid another “Ynares Center curse” to their former second overall pick player.
“We postponed it kasi nasa Ynares na naman tayo tapos Magnolia na naman ang kalaban. So wala namang mawawala kung hindi kami magmamadali,” said Guiao.
NLEX is currently the league-leader in the standings of the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup. In their last outing, the Road Warriors proved to everyone that they’re the real deal this conference.
That Sunday victory also gave the Road Warriors a twice-to-beat advantage once the quarterfinals start.
