Monday Quickies: NBA Restart Concerns Edition

New, 16 comments

Should the NBA consider scrapping its restart?

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Los Angeles Lakers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA is on the horizon, but there could be complications along the way. Several players have announced they’ll sit-out or miss a portion of the bubble season, with more players likely to second that notion.

On Sunday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted that the Milwaukee Bucks shut down their facilities after they received recent COVID-19 test results.

Just three days ago, the NBA had nine new COVID-19 cases. Thankfully, those nine came from a massive 344 tests.

Considering we don’t know much of anything about the virus, it’s almost impossible to predict the future of this NBA season and how it will play out.

Will teams be forced to leave the bubble and miss part/all of the season? Will star players be held out of competition? So many dominoes can fall and only time will tell.

It’s amazing there weren’t more people injured in the pileup.
