FIBA said it will make a decision about the future of the Basketball Champions League, Basketball Africa League, and other suspended international competitions soon.
The governing body released a statement saying that "no circumstance should our passion to play basketball surpass the importance of following the instructions of the public authorities."
The Basketball Africa League was set to make its league debut.
FIBA also advocated for postponing the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
"We will not ask our players to go somewhere, where we would not send our own children," added members of the governing body.
