Even though the coronavirus continues to spread through the NBA, the league hasn’t given any thought to canceling its season, according to Pelicans executive vice president David Griffin ( from Will Guillory of The Athletic). Griffin made the comment Saturday night on the Pelicans' Twitter feed during a rebroadcast of a game from earlier this season.
The number of NBA players testing positive for the virus grew from two to 10 over the past week. Three members of the Sixers organization and a member of the Nuggets organization have also tested positive.
Griffin’s comment meshes with a statement by NBA commissioner Adam Silver earlier this week that he remains that the season will be concluded in some form.
