Report: NBA Announces Huge Step in Effort to Resume 2019-20 Season

1 Min Read

The NBA is taking a massive step in efforts to resume the 2019-20 NBA season.

Back in March, Commissioner Adam Silver suspended the season after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

In the weeks following the momentous announcement, numerous players from different teams contracted the virus. Some of the NBA’s best players, including superstars Kevin Durant and Donovan Mitchell, tested positive for the virus.

Beyond the NBA, the majority of the economy shut down as well. New cases and death rates due to the virus soared in April.

As a result, the league has been extremely cautious and strict with allowing players to work out. In fact, most players in the association haven’t played basketball for two months.

On the bright side, most teams around the league have allowed their players to return to practice facilities in recent weeks.

However, there is no official timetable for when the league will resume the season.
