The NBA has set a conference call for Wednesday afternoon with team owners and governors to discuss next steps in growing coronavirus crisis, league sources tell ESPN.
There are escalating concerns among many owners and executives that the NBA could be headed toward games played with only essential personnel in arenas, but so far, the league office has only pushed teams to be prepared such that necessity arise.
There are no current mandates from any national, state or local officials that NBA games should yet be played without fans based upon the outbreak of the coronavirus in North American.
Nevertheless, the NBA has teams ramping up preparations for contingencies based upon emerging details and consultations with medical experts and municipalities.
There is also a conference call on Monday evening for team physicians and athletic trainers with the NBA, according to a memo obtained by ESPN on Saturday.
