Report: Miami Heat G League Team’s Season Expected to Be Cancelled
- Updated: March 15, 2020
On Sunday, the CDC issued a recommendation that organizers should cancel or postpone in-person events of 50 people or more in the United States in an attempt to reduce the introduction of the coronavirus into new communities.
Shortly after the recommendation was posted, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the NBA’s G League franchises expect their season to be canceled, which means that the Sioux Falls Skyforce will no longer play basketball this season.
Reporting with @malika_andrews: NBA teams operating G League franchises expect rest of the minor-league season will soon be cancelled, sources tell ESPN. Regular season runs thru end of March, playoffs into April. Players have been informed they'll be paid thru end of schedule.

Even though the G League season is expected to be canceled, there is still some hope that the Miami Heat will return to the court at some point.
The NBA announced the suspension of its regular season on Wednesday after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus.
At the time, the league was to re-evaluate the suspension after 30 days. However, the recommendation from the CDC will keep the suspension going for the next eight weeks.
