CJ McCollum shared his thoughts on the decision of the NBA to suspend the season due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

McCollum said he’s currently on standby and doesn’t know if he’s going to be staying in Portland or heading back to Ohio. However, he believes the season will resume.

“I’m not even sure what the travel situation is like. We’re on standby. I don’t know (Blazers) practice schedules. I have no idea what is going on. But, I will be [in Portland] for a little while. My great uncle actually just passed away, so I probably will have to go home for the funeral.

I think it will (resume), but health and safety is and should be our main priority going forward,” he told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.

The NBA decided to suspend the season for at least 30 days, after two players of the Utah Jazz, Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, were tested positive for the coronavirus.
