NBA teams worried about coronavirus affecting older staff

As the global sporting community gradually reopens, owners of NBA teams are yet to decide on when play should resume.

NBA matches were called off after two Utah Jazz players tested positive to the Coronavirus.

An online vote among owners was undertaken on Thursday to arrive at a quick decision

It was an even split.

Half of the GMs want to see the regular season continue, while little more than half of the GMs would like to see the 16 playoff teams seeded first through 16th without consideration of conferences.

No decision on what format to adopt if play resumes has been agreed upon.

The NBA announced last weekend that it was in negotiations with Disney to
restart the season this summer at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
near Orlando, Florida.
