Udonis Haslem hopes the NBA will account for the mental health of its players, in case they decide to resume the season.

The legend of the Miami Heat suggested the league provides resources to make sure players are happy and in a good head space.

“You’ve got to give guys outlets, so they can stay mentally healthy. Because, if not, the game is going to struggle, you’re going to get bad basketball. Guys aren’t going to be happy and it’s just not going to work,” Haslem said, via Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

The NBA is planning to make its final decision on the resumption of the season within the next 2-4 weeks.
