Spurs’ Marco Belinelli is taking coronavirus situation very seriously

Marco Belinelli, Spurs

San Antonio Spurs veteran swingman Marco Belinelli shared a series of tweets on how he’s handling the coronavirus situation.

Belinelli posted a list of guidelines for his followers in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the NBA has postponed the 2019-20 season indefinitely, players and its staff have been instructed to stay at home as much as possible. Medical experts, too, have advised the general public to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds.

Belinelli also shared that he has cleaned his entire apartment.

For good measure, he reminded everyone to just stay at home.

Belinelli and the Spurs’ last game was a 119-109 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday. On Wednesday, only four of the slated six games were played. One of them, the game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Utah Jazz, was just seconds away from tipoff. Reports revealed that they were actually waiting for the test results of Rudy Gobert, who was in the team’s hotel. When the test results yielded positive for COVID-19, the NBA quickly suspended the season.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver noted that the league will likely not resume play for at least 30 days. He also said that there’s a possibility that the entire season will not continue. Initially, the NBA front office was discussing to hold closed-door games which will feature just the two teams with limited staff and crew.

For the time being, the NBA is working close with medical experts on how to contain the virus’ spread. They are also studying how the season will pan out.
