Lakers to sign JR Smith for rest of season

NBA Finalizes July 30 Restart To 2019-2020 Season At Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex In Orlando

When action resumes on July 30, Zion Williamson will grab the spotlight in the first game back, followed by the battle for Los Angeles between the Lakers and Clippers. "But we're working closely with the Players' Association, with Disney, and with public health officials in Florida as to what that line should be".

The season has been in hiatus since, but teams are set to arrive at the Disney campus for training by July 11. "No options are risk free right now.Yet we can't sit on the sidelines indefinitely, and we must adapt". "And so it's a closed network; and while it's not impermeable, we are in essence protected from cases around us".

"So for those reasons, we're still very comfortable being in Orlando".

It was Jazz player Rudy Gobert's positive test in March that led the National Basketball Association suspending its season in mid-March.

Virus death toll drops to 5 in NY, once the U.S. epicenter
More than 90 percent of state and local government workers receive paid sick leave, even among the lowest wage-earners. The US is the worst-hit country by the pandemic with more than 2.5 million cases and almost 126,000 fatalities.

Silver said the record number of cases in Florida recently has raised the level of concern but added that the use of the campus - where players will live, practise and play - is created to limit risk of exposure to the surrounding community. The country recorded new single-day records for new cases on both Wednesday and Thursday, as did several states - including Florida.

The league also will address the recent calls for social justice in the wake of George Floyd's death.

For the 22 teams going to Disney, the setup of the eight-game slates will be largely the same - one back-to-back for each of the clubs, with all the games set to be played in a 16-day span ending August 14.

The regular-season games at the Disney complex will be held at three different courts. If the ninth-ranked team trails by four games or less, a play-in tournament would determine the final seed. The Lakers may need that kind of scoring threat during the playoffs, but it'll be his outside shooting that could be his best contribution to the team once the season resumes in late July.
