depressing

At this rate something has to give no?? I can't see a team missing 5 games + while the rest of the league keeps trucking.

Celtics will have their own mini bubble by then, playing all the rescheduled games

I just hope the players and the team learn from this. Maybe impose a team policy to not interact with the opposing team before or after the game without wearing a mask (although this should be a league mandate). The players can't have the same mindset as if they're still playing in the bubble.

Agreed.  Makes no sense either when you expect players to wear masks on the bench

Also players were allowed to have one guest (family or special) visit their hotel room.   They should ban this also

Just cancel the season. That would take away one of LeBron's last few good years. ;D

Nba messed up by not allowing 2 more two way players at the beginning of the season

They should do that now

And not have it affect cap/luxury tax

I completely agree.  They should have an alternative roster of 5 players that practices by themselves and is social distanced from the rest of the team so they can't be included in contract tracing.  G league guys or street FA's like IT that practice and can be called upon at any time.  Minimum deals that don't affect the salary cap for this year.

short sighted by the NBA

Celtics schedule is going to be messed up.  I'm just going to assume Friday game will be cancelled also.  And Celts will get in a practice on Sat and will resume vs Knicks on Sunday.  A good chunk of the players should be allowed back by Friday

Iím fine with it. Tatumless games donít bode well for the win column.

Mavs game also cancelled today

Quote
While the league has not confirmed which players have tested positive or been exposed to COVID-19, Mavericks players Dorian Finney-Smith, Josh Richardson and Jalen Brunson have been listed as "out" on the public injury/illness report since Friday due to the NBA's protocols. The Maverick's played Saturday's game against the Orland Magic without the trio.

"Today's game was postponed by the league not because of a depleted roster, but to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and team personnel," a Mavericks spokesperson told CBS News.
