It seems the Los Angeles Lakers will not visit the White House in late April, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

As McMenamin reports, scheduling challenges and coronavirus protocols prevent the Lakers from visiting the White House.

“The Los Angeles Lakers will not visit President Joe Biden at the White House to celebrate their 2020 NBA championship when the team travels to Washington, D.C., for a game against the Wizards later this month, a source with knowledge of the situation told ESPN.

Scheduling challenges and continued COVID-19 protocols will prevent a visit in the April 27-28 window when the Lakers are in the nation’s capital for the Wizards game, but a future meet-and-greet with the 46th president of the United States has not been ruled out, the source told ESPN,” McMenamin writes, via Lakers Nation.
