And it doesn't look like the NBA has any answers about when the league could be targeting a return to action.
According to Tim Bontemps of ESPN, NBA commissioner Adam Silver stated in a recent interview that he doesn't have a better answer about when the league might be back. And also, he said that he wouldn't be able to make a decision about the potential return of the league until May 1 at the earliest.
Obviously, that's bad news for any who are hoping that basketball will return soon. Because even if a decision can be made on May 1, it will likely take time for the league to implement whatever strategy they choose to get up and running again.
And beyond that, players may need time to get tuned up. In a recent interview, Enes Kanter said that he expects players will need 2-3 weeks to work their way back into game shape and for that reason, the league can't just jump back into the playoffs. So, that's another factor that the NBA has to take into account.
The main takeaway from this news is that we still don't know when the NBA -- or any other sport, for that matter -- will return. It's going to be fluid and it will take some time to figure out, but at least NBA aficionados will have the May 1 target date as a time that an answer could possibly come.
