G League Suspends Play

No Schedule For Return

The NBA G League has suspended its season after a player on the NBA’s Utah Jazz tested positive for the coronavirus.

The development league made the announcement shortly after the NBA suspended its own season when Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive. Gobert and the Jazz had played against the Boston Celtics two weeks earlier, and two Celtics players were later assigned to the G League’s Maine Red Claws.

The league already had procedures in place to protect its players, including making locker rooms off-limits and limiting contact with the media, and a plan was in place to play games behind closed doors. Teams average between 15,000 to 20,000 fans per game.

While the NBA’s suspension is for “at least 30 days,” there is no timetable for the G League’s return.
