1 Min Read

The NBA is getting close to resuming the 2019-20 season.

As a matter of fact, NBA commissioner Adam Silver reportedly told the Board of Governors that July 31 is a target date for resumption of the season.

The NBA suspended the 2019-20 campaign back in March after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert contracted the novel coronavirus.

In the days following the gigantic decision, several other players from around the league also tested positive for the deadly virus.

The list included some of the league’s finest stars, such as Kevin Durant and Donovan Mitchell. In addition, hundreds of thousands of people across the country have died as a result of the virus in the last couple months.

Therefore, Silver has been extremely scrupulous in his decision-making regarding the resumption of the 2019-20 season.

While fans would love to see teams back on the court, the health of the players remains the paramount priority.

The Miami Heat are currently in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
