I wonder if "open run invite" lets teams (or the league) have a pool of unsigned players in the bubble that will available as injury/illness replacements?

Kind of felt this was needed. Let the league bring 8-10 replacement players to the bubble in case of mid-season opt-out or injuries.

My thought would be 12 players. Let each team pick one. Something like that.

Good idea - then teams could trade those players for a replacement player if the positional need is not right. For ex, Indy needs a 2, but has a 4. Trades her to some other team for a 2 (or maybe a 3rd round draft pick or a bottle of hand sanitizer.)

Do we expect them to live in the bubble without pay?

It seems optimistic to me that they'll be able to geo-block it accurately enough to pull that off, but the idea is cool. Hopefully they'll lean towards letting a few extra people stream them for free than try to be too careful and end up with complaints.

Talking of which, at some point they probably need to start selling/advertising/whatever the 2020 League Pass. I presume they're trying to hold off on stuff like that and the schedule until they're absolutely sure the games are going to happen, but eventually they've just got to jump. Maybe things finally start to kick in properly once the teams are actually in Florida...

For a short article, there's honestly a lot to say here. I don't know how lucrative local tv deals are for a team/the League, but with no ticket revenue, it seems like this kind of thing would further put a team in a hole. How are the owners ok with this since I perceive it to mean less revenue? Or to pose it a different way, how much do the owners view this year as a complete loss and this move as sort of a 'goodwill' investment for the future?

Too, I wonder if this means other teams will be doing free streaming for their respective local fanbase. Otherwise, it'd be kind of weird not to have that kind of set standard across the League. On a semi-related personal note, my wallet and I are ready to renew my full League Pass subscription no matter what the cost is this year.

And then we get to the basketball side of things. The Fever as a whole have flown under the radar since their (intentional?) passivity in free agency. But if they can start at and stay at full strength while other teams projected ahead of them have to deal with missing pieces or incorporating new ones, that could give the Fever a real advantage in a shortened season. While the addition of Cox will be important, she's still just a rookie - Stanley's the real wild card as to how she's going to play this group. I can't say I know what this team hitting their ceiling would look like for this year when most of the other teams will basically be varying degrees of weakened versions of themselves.

If Dupree is showing up, I'm guessing that means Bonner will as well for Connecticut? (considering she's the one that would be leaving a giant contract on the table were she to opt out)

Anyone know if the Fever are traveling today to Florida?

No word if the entire team is traveling or which two players tested positive.

Could be the entire team if the 2 players cleared quarantine, which would depend on when they actually first tested positive.

Erica Wheeler said on Twitter that she is not with the team as she "follows one more round WNBA protocol."

Would seem like she one of the positive tests, and that she is doing well.

The other 11 teams traveled to Florida earlier in the week, but the Fever waited after two players tested positive for COVID-19. The team said Monday the unidentified players were asymptomatic.


There’s the video with Catchings and Stanley talking about the outlook for the season.

Achonwa, Dupree, Burke, Doyle and T. Mitchell have arrived. McCowan, Allemand & K. Mitchell are arriving "later".

Edited to add that the McCowan-Allemand-KMitchell flight was either delayed or canceled.

The later flight arrived which also had Mavunga and Vivians. This is to be assumed that Wheeler and Cox might be the two Fever players that tested positive.

Yet, there are photos of Cox practicing on Twitter. I would advise to be careful to jump to any conclusions w/o the facts.

Cox and Wheeler are the only two Fever players not in the bubble yet. So I would assume that Cox is indeed the second Fever player that tested positive.

Quote:
Cox has yet to join team
Stanley also noted that Lauren Cox, the third overall pick in this year's draft, is not yet in the bubble due to medical protocols.

"She’s good," Stanley said. "Talk to her every day. She’s very upbeat, excited. As soon as she gets here, we’ll let you know.”
