Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is hoping to have LA Tenorio take part in full practices and scrimmages as early as next week.

Assistant coach Richard del Rosario said Tenorio is still in the process of completing his quarantine period following a brief visit in the United States a few weeks ago.

During his trip, Tenorio and teammate Mark Caguioa reunited with former national teammate Jimmy Alapag.

Recent social media posts show Tenorio keeping himself in shape before he can rejoin the Gin Kings training sessions.

Ginebra started resuming practices last Thursday in Batangas City but has since moved to Aquamarine Recreational Center in nearby Lipa City.

Christian Standhardinger, who was traded from NorthPort in exchange for Greg Slaughter in early-March, has taken part in Ginebra practices along with regulars like Japeth Aguilar and Stanley Pringle.

Tenorio won Finals Most Valuable Player honors last season when Ginebra ruled the Philippine Cup held under a bubble setup in Clark, Pampanga.
