Adam Silver went on the record in a conference call on Friday that the NBA will not suspend its season if a player tests positive for COVID-19, no matter the player.
"If we were to have significant spread of coronavirus through our community, that ultimately might lead us to stopping," Silver said. "But we're working closely with the players' association, with Disney, and with public health officials in Florida as to what that line should be. And it hasn't been precisely designed. I think we want to get down on the ground and start to see how our testing's working and how the protocols are working and then we'll make decisions as we go."
The NBA will tests players and staff on a daily basis.
"My ultimate conclusion is we can't outrun the virus, and we are going to be living with this for the foreseeable future," said Silver.
