NBA Season Restart

As the NBA continues to formulate a plan for how to proceed both during and post CoronaVirus, ESPN’s NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that more of the league’s owners and executives believe a return to league play is near.

Here’s the crux of the report according to Woj:

Owners and executives on the call were encouraged about the league’s progress toward minimizing health risk upon a return and the league office’s positive conversations with the National Basketball Players Association about the players’ desire to eventually restart the season, sources said.

Undoubtedly, the subject of testing and health procedures came up over the call, with the goal in mind that A) the league’s safety for both team officials and players would be comfortable, and B) that even with a positive test, that would not completely bring the return of the league to a halt.

Additionally, Woj reports that NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has described the return to play as a “bubble-isolation plan,” with Silver’s words being, “a campus environment.”

Here’s our breakdown of all the latest reporting that includes both Las Vegas and/or Disney World in Orlando as potential destinations.
