MANILA, Philippines — Everything is set for the 12 PBA teams in the "bubble" in Clark City.

With the final batch of teams arriving in Pampanga on Tuesday, the ball clubs are now simply awaiting for the results of their swab test taken upon entering Clark.

Once results are made available and no snags are encountered, teams may begin five-on-five scrimmages in preparation of the league's October 12 restart.

"We're waiting for the results. Typically, it's 24-48 hours," said president and CEO of Bases Conversion and Development Authority Vince Dizon.

League commissioner Willie Marcial said that everything is already good to go at the official training and game venue once the tests come back.

"Hinihintay lang natin yung test result. Pagkatapos noon, game na tayo, scrimmages na tayo," Marcial said.

Training and games are set to be played at the Angeles University Foundation.

The PBA offered sneak peeks of the courts to be used at the AUF Gym last Sunday.

Once action resumes, the PBA is set to give basketball fans double-headers every day during elimination before shifting back to its regular Wednesday-Friday-Sunday schedule in the post-season.
