The Golden State Warriors were the first team in the NBA to close their facilities down. The rest of the league followed suit just a few days later.

Throughout this whole process, NBA owners have been hopeful of restarting the season in the summer, most likely without fans. However, as each day passes, it feels like the 2019-20 season is going to be canceled altogether unless there’s a miracle in the near future.

Most NBA players don’t have access to hoops during this time. However, they are able to stay in shape at home since organizations sent weights and other things players can use to work out.
