NBA suspension to likely last over 2 weeks
The NBA suspension will be at least 2 weeks.
The regular-season stoppage will be at least two weeks so all players affected can go through quarantine, but league insiders believe it will be longer. For perspective, the Chinese Basketball Association suspended play in late January and remains inactive. In related news, the NBA is telling players from the Toronto Raptors, Detroit Pistons, Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, and Cleveland Cavaliers to self-quarantine because they have all played the Utah Jazz in recent days. Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday night.
