NBA Uncertain of Return, Won’t Have Answer Until May at Earliest

With rumours circulating that the MLB is hoping to begin holding games in a “baseball bubble” in Arizona as early as May, the NBA remains without an answer of what the future of its season holds.

“The short answer is no,” said commissioner Adam Silver in an interview with Ernie Johnson of Inside the NBA.

As the hiatus continues, the NBA and NBPA have been considering the viability of multiple blood-testing devices for COVID-19, that could provide immediate results. An Illinois-based group has come up with a rapid-response testing system and has began shipping tests across the United States last week.

“Rapid-testing results are key to return to work, return to sports, everything,” one NBA general manager told ESPN. “Whatever job you have and environment you work in, if you’re interacting with people, we’re all going to have to feel safe doing that. Sports isn’t any different.”

The NBA, however, is very aware that rapid-testing could exceed demand by early May and is therefore hesitant in making any sort of statements till at least the start of next month.

The league suspended play on March 11.
