Calvin Abueva Awaits Clearance!

Calvin Abueva Nears Season Debut for Magnolia, Awaits Clearance for Clash Against Converge

Calvin Abueva is set to make his season debut for Magnolia in this Saturday’s PBA Season 48 Commissioner’s Cup game against Converge. Head coach Chito Victolero gave an upbeat update on Abueva’s condition, saying the dynamic player has fully participated in practice sessions after recuperating from a calf injury suffered earlier in the season. The only thing standing in the way of Abueva’s long-awaited return to the court is formal permission from the team’s physical therapist.

Abueva’s absence from the conference’s early stages was first ascribed to a medical procedure for hemorrhoid removal, and he later suffered a setback with a calf injury. Despite these difficulties, the 35-year-old just signed a new three-year deal with Magnolia, demonstrating the team’s faith in his ability.

Magnolia has fared admirably in Abueva’s absence, with an 8-1 win-loss record, including a notable seven-game winning run to begin the Commissioner’s Cup. The prospective presence of Abueva in the lineup adds another element of intrigue for fans, and Coach Victolero stressed that the decision to play him on Saturday is contingent on the team’s physical therapist’s clearance.

While Magnolia waits for Abueva’s comeback, Saturday’s game against Converge might be a critical turning point in Magnolia’s Commissioner’s Cup campaign.
