Warriors’ Draymond Green feels NBA won’t resume for a long time

Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green is just being honest when he says he doesn’t think the NBA is going to resume for a long time.

The NBA suspended the 2019-20 season on Wednesday after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus. Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell has the virus as well.

Green says nobody knows if the season is going to resume, but the Warriors’ swingman says the NBA better play it safe.

“The only way I think they allow the season to start back up is if they come out with some stuff to say, ‘It’s not as bad as we thought’ or if they find some kind of cure,” Draymond Green told Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic.

“Because otherwise, if they start the season back up and then somebody else catches it, then what? You can’t just quarantine a few guys for some days and then start it all back up. That shit ain’t going to work.”

The Warriors were going to miss the playoffs this season for the first time under head coach Steve Kerr. However, the rest of the season wasn’t totally pointless for the Dubs.

Kerr wanted Green and superstar point guard Stephen Curry to develop chemistry with new small forward Andrew Wiggins. The Warriors acquired Wiggins from the Minnesota Timberwolves in the D’Angelo Russell trade last February.

Now, it appears Green, Curry and Wiggins won’t be able to develop a rapport for a while. As Dray suggested though, it is better to be safe than sorry.
