NBA Commissioner Adam Silver talked about what will happen in case a player tests positive for the coronavirus when the league resumes.

Silver stated teams will keep playing and the season will not be cancelled. The NBA will restart the season on July 31st in Orlando.

“The answer is we do not believe we would need to. We’ve been dealing with a group of our experts plus public health authorities down in Florida now.

And the view is that if we were testing everyday and we were able to trace contacts that player has had, we’re able to in essence, contain that player and separate him from his team.

And we’re continuing to test everyday. The belief is we would not have to shut down if a single player tested positive,” Silver said in an interview with NBA legend and TNT analyst Charles Barkley.
