The NBA continues to delay events due to the Coronavirus.
Back on March 11th, the NBA was forced to shut down as one of its players contracted the Coronavirus. Since then, multiple players have been diagnosed positive with COVID-19 and the NBA is looking for ways to come back without putting the players at risk. New information surrounding the virus continues to come out every single day and sports fans are worried that the entire season could be canceled. Regardless, the NBA seems eager to find a solution, and today, the league announced the postponement of two more events.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the NBA is now postponing the NBA Draft Lottery and the NBA Draft combine. Both of these events were set to take place this month in Chicago but now, it is impossible for it to go down.
Of course, in order for the lottery to happen, you need to know how the teams lineup in the standings. Since there are still games to be played, the current standings aren't an accurate representation of how things will end up. More importantly, a draft lottery or combine wouldn't be conducive to social distancing which is still very much needed.
It remains to be seen when these events will take place so stay tuned for updates as we will be sure to bring them to you.
