NBA analyst Brian Windhorst talked about coronavirus spread’s impact on the NBA:
“Everything is on the table. Any option you wanna bring: suspending the game, moving fans from arenas, relocating games to neutral sites, all of that stuff is possible. The NBA is making decisions with a players safety – No. 1. If the government will take it [decision on coronavirus precautionary measures] out of the owners’ hands, they’ll have to decide what’s it gonna be,” Windhorst said.
As an example of what might happen, he pointed to China:
“In China, when this become a major issue, they shut the Chinese basketball association down. And they [China] haven’t done anything in two months,” he said.
