NBA Rumors: Teams In Locked-Down States Can Re-Open Facilities Friday

The NBA is taking baby steps toward resuming play, and the latest news should give fans a glimmer of hope.

The league has notified teams that it plans on allowing practice facilities to re-open in states where shelter-in-place orders and advisories have been put in place “pending new developments,” according to The New York Times’ Marc Stein.

Excuse us while we try to contain our excitement.

It’s been nearly two months since the NBA indefinitely suspended the 2019-20 season after Utah Jazz star Rudy Gobert tested positive for the deadly coronavirus. Since then, all professional sports leagues in the United States have paused (though some more briefly than others) as the pandemic took hold of the country.

Hopefully, this is a sign of more good things to come.
