The trending buzz and panic surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak has affected towards almost everyone, including here in the United States.
And most recently, insider Shams Charania posted on social media that all NBA teams have been warned that they may be playing without fans in their home arena because of the virus.
ESPN said in their post that this memo/warning includes certain media members and most attendees at the games.
However, there are people who strongly opposes the idea of the proposed ban. Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James voiced his displeasure of it, saying he won’t play if it’s in effect and that he ‘plays for the fans.’
There is no clear date on when this memo will be in effect, but the preparation for the ban is believed to be underway.
Reports have also stated that if a player is affected with the virus itself, is expected to miss at least two weeks.
