MANILA, Philippines — The PBA resumes with a tripleheader on Wednesday nearly a month after suspending its play due to the rising COVID-19 Delta cases in the country.

The league on Tuesday announced its partial schedule for the 2021 Philippine Cup, which has been relocated to a semi-bubble environment in Bacolor, Pampanga.

Unbeaten TNT, which holds a 3-0 record, and winless Blackwater raise the curtain at 12:30 p.m.

San Miguel Beer’s CJ Perez faces his former team Terrafirma at 3 p.m. while Meralco and No. 1 Magnolia, the only other undefeated team at 4-0, clash in the main game at 6 p.m.

Perez was shipped by the Dyip to the Beermen in a controversial trade last February.

San Miguel has won three in a row after dropping its opening game assignment.

All games will be played at DHVSU Gym.
