Korea will not participate in the second window of the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers.
According to a report by Naver’s Min Joon-gu, Korea’s basketball federation, the KBA, has decided that Bahrain is “not a safe zone for COVID-19.”
“Considering the safety of the national team, I thought it was right not to go to Bahrain,” a KBA official told the publication.
Korea was supposed to take on the Philippines on the 27th, and Indonesia on the 30th in a bubble in Manama, Bahrain.
Korea is on top of Group A with a 2-0 record.
On the other hand, Gilas (1-0) has yet to gain clearance from the Interagency Task Force to train inside a bubble in Calamba, Laguna.
