Robert Bolick out of NorthPort’s PBA bubble lineup

Robert Bolick may have already recovered from his injury, but NorthPort has decided not to risk him for the upcoming PBA season restart in Clark.

The incoming sophomore has been left off the Batang Pier’s lineup for the upcoming resumption inside the bubble as a precautionary measure.

Team manager Bonnie Tan confirmed the development to Tiebreaker Times on Friday afternoon.

Bolick, though, has been taking part in team practices after ball clubs received permission from the government last August.

The 25-year-old has recovered from the anterior cruciate ligament injury he suffered last October during NorthPort’s Governors’ Cup clash versus San Miguel.

That ended his impressive rookie season that saw him help the Batang Pier clinch the second seed in the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup. They fell to eventual champions Beermen in the quarterfinals.

Bolick was in the discussion for Rookie of the Year honors until that injury. He still made it to the All-Rookie Team at the end of the season.

The proud son of Leyte remains keen to bounce back once he returns to the fold now that he’s expected to lead the fight for the Batang Pier.
