Nick Nurse shared his thoughts on the possibility of the 2020/21 season tipping off on December 22.

The head coach of the Toronto Raptors said a late December start is not late at all for the players and the coaches.

Nurse also added he and his players are ‘ready to go’.

The NBA and NBPA are close to an agreement in order for the new season to start on December 22.

It is very likely the Raptors will be forced to play their home games outside of Canada, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
