The NHL and NBA announced Wednesday night they are postponing all remaining games until further notice. This news comes after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive for Coronavirus earlier that night. Before the game between the Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder started, it was announced the game would be postponed because of Gobert’s positive test. The NBA had one game yet to play, the Sacramento Kings vs. the New Orleans Pelicans, which was also postponed. Not long after the news of the games being postponed was released, the league then dropped the next bombshell to the country by indefinitely postponing the season. It was also announced that the league will meet on Thursday to discuss their next move.
On Thursday morning, the postponements kept coming in. All NCAA post-season tournaments with the exception of the Big East as of now are all canceled.
After many meetings and rumors starting on Wednesday night and into Thursday morning, the NHL announced they will also be postponing their season. This news came after all teams conducted no morning skates and there was word that on-ice officials had been told to make arrangements to go home.
All three leagues kept the door open for the possibility of starting the season at a later date with the NHL asking teams about arena availability through July.
