After the arrival of its mainstays based in Japan, Gilas Pilipinas intends to resume its daily training sessions.
Dwight Ramos of Hokkaido, Kiefer Ravena of Shiga, Thirdy of San-En, and Ray-Ray Parks of Nagoya are all slated to be released from their responsibilities with their respective national teams by the 28th of October, which might indicate that they could arrive as soon as this weekend at the earliest.
The B.League stars’ on-time arrival is still an unknown factor, according to the team’s head coach Chot Reyes, who did say that the daily grind might not be as long as usual.

After the weekly Gilas Pilipinas practice that took place on Monday night at the Meralco Gym in Pasig, Reyes stated after the session that “We don’t know the arrival yet of our B.League players.” “We are hoping to have the event over the course of three days, on October 31, November 1, and November 2, but we are not certain.”
The time span in question falls within the Philippine Basketball Association’s (PBA) planned Halloween break. During this time, the league is expected to take the following day, November 2, off after playing a doubleheader on October 30 at the Ynares Center in Antipolo. Play will then resume on November 4 at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig.
Ateneo’s Ange Kouame and Adelaide’s Kai Sotto are also waiting for confirmation about joining Gilas Pilipinas, which will provide Gilas a boost inside for the fifth window of the FIBA World Cup despite the inability of June Mar Fajardo to play due to injury.
Kouame, Carl Tamayo of the University of the Philippines, and Kevin Quiambao of La Salle will all be able to join Gilas Pilipinas after the University Athletic Association of the Philippines takes a break from competition from November 6 through November 16.
On Monday, there were a total of 10 players present for Gilas Pilipinas’ practice, and Quiambao was the only amateur player that took part in the session.
Professional players such as Chris Newsome, Scottie Thompson, Japeth Aguilar, Jamie Malonzo, RR Pogoy, Calvin Oftana, Poy Erram, Arvin Tolentino, and LeBron Lopez are competing alongside him.
