One of the two final steps that need to be fulfilled before Calvin Abueva can play has been completed.
Officials of the Games and Amusements (GAB) confirmed this yesterday after Abueva went through a seminar of The Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards of a Professional Athlete.
GAB representative Karen Mallonga confirmed this after meeting Abueva through virtual conference.
Abueva is seeking clearance to play after more than a year since he was banned indefinitely from the league.
“Calvin Abueva was able to submit his tasked activities in a timely manner,” said Mallonga in her report to GAB chairman Abraham Mitra.
Abueva’s second and last task is to undergo a mandatory drug test as part of the medical requirements.
The two conditions were set after the Phoenix forward was allowed to enter the PBA bubble in Clark, Pampanga.
And this is while Abueva waits for the green light for him to join the league restart.
So far, Abueva has joined the Fuel Masters at the Quest Hotel.
Abueva has since been joining in the Fuel Masters’ practices.
Abueva has been banned from the league since June 2019.
His banishment came after a series of on-court incidents which included altercations with former Blackwater rookie Ray Parks and former TNT KaTropa import Terrence Jones.
He has since apologized for his actions, and went through community service and counseling sessions. Clark Development Corporation people will do the drug test according to Mitra.
