President Trump holds call with sports commissioners, reportedly hopes to have fans back by Aug. or Sept.

When the NBA announced it would suspend play on March 11 due to the growing concerns of the coronavirus pandemic, it set off a chain of reactions that caused several other sports leagues to postpone or cancel events. At this point, it’s still unclear when play will resume, though, on Saturday afternoon, leading sports figures from around the sports world did hold a conference call with President Donald Trump. 

Doesn’t mean that the season will be canceled, but that the league is preparing for all possible outcomes as the spread of the corona-virus continues to worsen across the United States. The league has billions of dollars on the line, and canceling the remainder of the season isn’t ideal, but if there’s no way to continue playing games in the next couple months, then chances of not having a 2020 NBA champion will grow.
