After a CDC report recommending that no gatherings of 50 or more people take place for the next eight weeks was released on Sunday night, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that a number of NBA owners and executives increasingly believe a best case scenario is a mid-to-late June return to play -- with no fans.
This may not come as such shocking news to some, with Adam Silver saying on TNT's Inside the NBA only just a few days ago, that the season would be suspended for at least 30 days and "of course it's possible" that the season as a whole gets canceled.
A return to basketball in mid-to-late June would mean the NBA Finals wouldn't take place until August -- something the league is already looking into by scouting possible arena dates that late into the year.
Sources also tell Wojnarowski and ESPN's Malika Andrews that NBA teams with G League franchises expect the rest of their seasons will soon be canceled.
Aside from the calendar issues, the fact that G League teams travel on commercial airlines and generally don't create much money for NBA teams makes it even harder to move forward for rest of the season. There is no imminent announcement expected on this matter as of Sunday night.
