It is a very small step, but it is a step forward as the Heat and the rest of the NBA try to allow fans to attend games.
Only a handful of teams are allowing fans to attend games since the 2019-20 NBA season was suspended in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The NBA resumed the 2019-20 season in a bubble in Orlando, Fla. in late July.
The league’s 2020-21 season began on Dec. 22, but with COVID-19 still a concern, there isn’t a set time for fans to return to arenas in full capacity.
The Heat and Bucks will tip off at 7:30 p.m. EST tonight in what is a rematch of the second round of last season’s playoffs.
