An altercation on the bench between the big man and assistant coach Jimmy Alapag triggers the disciplinary action
MANILA, Philippines – Kelly Nabong was reportedly suspended indefinitely by the Meralco Bolts on Tuesday, October 3, right before their PBA semifinals Game 2 against the Star Hotshots to be held in Sta Rosa, Laguna.
The aftermath of the altercation on the bench between the big man and assistant coach Jimmy Alapag last Sunday, October 1, triggered the Bolts' decision to suspend Nabong until further notice.
There was a hole on the Bolts' dugout door, which was reported to be damaged by Nabong before he left the Alonte Sports Arena.
Nabong was scoreless in the first game of the best-of-five series against the Star Hotshots. Down by 17 points, Meralco nabbed the win to move a game ahead of the Hotshots in the PBA semifinals duel.
