Deni Avdija will resume his season with Maccabi Tel Aviv when the Israeli basketball league returns Sunday.
Avdija is projected high lottery pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
"Before I go to the U.S., I have a job to finish here in Israel," Avdija wrote in an email to ESPN. "As a competitor I am committed to my organization and teammates to help bring a championship to Tel Aviv. We were having such a great season, so winning the title, even with the delay and without live fans, will give me a sense that the hard work paid off."
Avdija is averaging 12.3 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 27 minutes per game.
