    JERICHO Cruz has just rejoined NLEX practices for the coming PBA season but will be leaving again for Amman, Jordan in the coming days for Guam’s games in the final window of the 2021 Fiba Asia Cup qualifiers.

    The MVP-owned ballclub confirmed the development on its website, saying Cruz had to complete the mandatory two-week quarantine after joining Guam in its US training in order to take part in the Road Warriors practice.

    While Cruz was completing his quarantine requirements, the Road Warriors held a training camp under a bubble set-up in Clark, with their practices held at the St. Paul American School in Clark City.

      Guam will play its matches at the Prince Hamza City Arena in Amman, Jordan on June 13 and June 15.
