Calvin Abueva is already one month into the indefinite suspension slapped on him by league commissioner Willie Marcial last June 4 for figuring in altercations with the girlfriend of Blackwater Elite rookie Ray Parks and with TNT import Terrence Jones.
The 31-year old bruiser out of San Sebastian College has already submitted a letter of apology as required by the PBA with regards to the back-to-back incidents which happened during the Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters’ first 2 games in the ongoing 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
Marcial bared that he already had a dialogue with Abueva and that he has received the said letter from the troubled forward but the 57-year old former league statistician, however, refused to divulge details of the meeting as well the timetable for the player’s return.
“We’ll see. I told him that he needs to show first what he needs to do,” said Marcial.
Phoenix Pulse coach Louie Alas, for his part, said that he still hasn’t spoken to Abueva following his meeting with the commissioner.
“I don’t know the content of the letter but he’s apologetic. That’s what they are asking for, that he apologize and be remorseful,” said Alas.
Without the benefit of attending team practices, Alas revealed that Abueva is keeping himself busy by working out on his own.
“He’s practicing by himself with my conditioning coach. It’s just respect to the PBA. Since he was suspended by the PBA he’s also suspended in everything.”
