The NBA badly wants to finish its season, as they were so close to the playoffs when the coronavirus pandemic forced its suspension. This is an idea that has been floated before, with Las Vegas as a potential playing site.
There is some optimism that the NBA will finish its season. They just don’t know how, and they need expanded testing before they can do so. That won’t be for weeks, at least.
