Remainder of G League Season Expected to be Cancelled Due to COVID-19

While slight hope remains that the NBA season will return, it appears as though the league is expected to cancel the remainder of the G League season.

The G League season was supposed to run through the end of this month with playoffs beginning in April. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, it is almost a certainty that this season will be called off, while the players have been informed that they will still receive the pay they are owed through the end of the season.

In the meantime, NBA owners believe the best-case scenario for a potential league return is mid-to-late June. Commissioner Adam Silver seems likely to restart play in empty arenas after the CDC recently recommended to hold events with no more than 50 people in the venue.

“Our world has changed since Wednesday’s [board of governors] call,” one team president told ESPN. “The reality isn’t lost on anyone right now.”

The league is in the process of scouting for arena dates into late August.
