Having said that, the NBA absolutely looks hellbent on making sure games continue to happen and a league-wide pause doesn’t.

Players are being required to stay at home while not on the road, and teams aren’t allowed to be outside of their hotels when traveling, according to Shams Charania.

Clearly, the league is aware of issues and trying to put a cap on the situation before it spirals out of control.

We’ll see if things continue to get worse, but the league is certainly in a tough spot at the moment.
