    The group’s decision is expected to hold significant weight in the decision-making process for the rest of the league’s players when it’s time to deliberate on whether to restart the season. ESPN reported that players association reps began informally polling players about resuming the season.*

    In a conference with players on Friday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver stated that he couldn’t guarantee the safety of the players if play resumed in a city where they would be quarantined, but assured them the league would do everything in its power to make the safest conditions possible, sources said.*That didn’t sit well with some players, sources said, with a vaccine not expected to be available for a year or two.*

    *The majority of players who are essentially eliminated from postseason contention would rather the league start back up with the top eight teams in each conference competing in some sort of playoff, sources said. For some players out of the playoff picture, there’s concern a canceled season could negatively affect the next CBA, sources said. Silver said he doesn’t have to make a decision on the season until some point in June.*

    Shams Charania:*NBA commissioner Adam Silver told Board of Governors today that he is aiming for a 2-to-4 week timetable on the decision about whether to resume season,*sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.*

    Shams Charania:*NBA and Adam Silver targeting a season decision in 2-to-4 weeks comes after Silver told players Friday it can go into June. Now — for first time since the coronavirus stoppage started on March 11 — a specific timeframe.*

    –*via*TwitterShamsCharania



    *

    Participants on a board of governors call Tuesday with NBA commissioner Adam Silver left the virtual meeting increasingly positive about the league’s momentum toward a resumption of play this season,sources told ESPN.*

    –*via*Adrian Wojnarowski @ ESPN



    *

    Owners and executives on the call were encouraged about the league’s progress toward minimizing health risk upon a return and the league office’s positive conversations with the National Basketball Players Association about the players’ desire to eventually restart the season,*sources said.*

    –*via*Adrian Wojnarowski @ ESPN

    *

    Discussions centered on health and safety concerns,*including the goal of getting team officials and players comfortable with the idea that a positive test for the coronavirus upon a return would not shutter play.*

    –*viaAdrian Wojnarowski @ ESPN



    *

    Silver told those on the call that if a positive test would “shut us down, we probably shouldn’t go down this path.”*The question remains: How many positive tests would be too many, and those are among the questions that the NBA, NBPA and medical experts have to come to terms with in the coming weeks before the league and union can greenlight a resumption of play.*

    –*viaAdrian Wojnarowski @ ESPN



    *

    Once the NBA formalizes a return to play, the league indicated to teams that the plan would be to standardize coronavirus testing among the 30 teams,*sources said. For now, the NBA is allowing teams to use a variety of tests.*

    –*via*Adrian Wojnarowski @ ESPN


    Adrian Wojnarowski:*Among factors league’s studying in ramp-up to final decision: Understanding trajectory of new cases, understanding who’s getting severely ill and why, developments in testing and how other sports are handling positive tests among participants and continuing to play, sources say.*

    Lmfao.... it is going to be weird, they’re going to have on back to back the scheduled games too at one location. Coaches will be heard loud and clear with directions and plays without fans, sneakers squeaking and the bench will be extremely important cheering and giving motivation.

    I think sneakers squeaking will be the most annoying thing ever, it's already annoying when there are fans in the building.

    They may end up getting 2 or more locations from West to East kind of like Summer league NBA basketball.

    Las Vegas and Orlando I believe is what they had. I could see them grouping teams at centralized locations and have a few back to back games for instance to limit unnecessary travel.

    It seems like it's up in the air at this point. I would not like them to go straight to a playoff tournament right out the gate. I think we need at least 10 to 15 games to get ready. A luxury that may not be available.
