Dr. Anthony Fauci told Yahoo! Sports that the idea of teams playing in front of full arenas by the end of the NBA playoffs in July is "cutting it close."
“We're gonna be vaccinating the highest-priority people [from] the end of December through January, February, March. By the time you get to the general public, the people who'll be going to the basketball games, who don't have any underlying conditions, that's gonna be starting the end of April, May, June.
"So it probably will be well into the end of the summer before you can really feel comfortable [with full sports stadiums] – if a lot of people get vaccinated," said Fauci.
Fauci added that having full NFL stadiums by next September is "possible."
The Jazz announced that they will allow up to 1500 fans this upcoming season.
