As CARLOS GARCIA from TheBlaze Reported:
The National Basketball League announced that they were suspending the season indefinitely on Wednesday over coronavirus fears.
The announcement was posted to their official social media account.
“The NBA is suspending game play following the conclusion of tonight’s schedule of games until further notice,” read the statement.
“The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic,” they added.
The announcement came after a game between the Utah Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder was cancelled when a player tested positively in a preliminary test for coronavirus. The statement indicates that the player was not in the arena when the game was cancelled.
ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt called the development “astounding” and “unprecedented.”
