Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, says the NBA could use thermal guns to check coronavirus symptoms once the season resumes.

Even though the league is initially expected to play games without fans, fans will be allowed to attend the games once the coronavirus pandemic is over.

As Cuban suggests, though, every fan attending future games could require a scan to see if they have a fever.

“It’s not hard to use thermal guns to take someone’s temperature and look for fevers. Is it feasible? Yes, absolutely. We have to be very cautious, particularly as we try to come back.

At first we’ll play a lot of games without fans and figure it out with all the medicines that become available, we’ll go from there,” Cuban said on CNBC, via Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News.

Cuban is hopeful the season will resume in mid-May.
