Sources: Proposed date for Game 7 of NBA Finals is Oct. 12

Quote:
As the NBA models a 22-team format for the season's proposed resumption beginning July 31 in Orlando, Florida, a timeline shared with teams as a last possible date for a Finals Game 7 lands on Oct. 12, sources told ESPN.

Commissioner Adam Silver is expected to have a proposal to take to a vote of the NBA's board of governors on Thursday, sources said.

The expectation is that the NBA draft and the opening of free agency would follow in sequential order in October, sources said.

Footy resumed down here last night.
Just before the opening bounce, all players of both teams, and the umpires, took a knee



Quote:
A statement was also read out about why the players decided to kneel before the game.
“Tonight’s gesture is one of support, unity and respect driven by the playing group. We stand in solidarity with our indigenous brothers and sisters for all people of colour. There is no place for racism. The knee is an expression of that support, we see strength in diversity, it makes us better as a football club and as a community. We will be there for each other always, especially at a time when many are impacted by what is going on around the world. We will continue to learn and walk this journey together.”

Tennis and Golf can actually get away with this.

There are "at least 6" or "over 8" depending on who is talking, owners who don't want to have a 2020 season. They require 75% of the 30 owners to agree to have it. That is 22.5, so 23 have to want it. So 7 or more owners not wanting a season would end it. That might be good for WNBA TV viewership.

Texas says 13 football players test positive for coronavirus

Quote:
Texas says that 13 football players have confirmed positive coronavirus test results or are presumed positive, according to Allen Hardin, the school's senior associate athletics director for sports medicine and performance.

Texas says all 13 players are now self-isolating and 10 more identified through contact tracing are in self-quarantine but asymptomatic at this time.

In addition, four players have tested positive for the COVID-19 antibody. The Centers for Disease Control says it does not know yet if antibodies can prevent a second infection or, if so, how long protection might last.

MLBPA agrees on 60 game season. July 24 would be opening day with games ending by Sept. 27. Kind of sucks their start date as it'll take the thunder away from the WNBA.

Yeah, it is a time when being a branch of the NBA likely hurt the WNBA as they had to wait for them to work things out. Would have been nice if they could have gotten on the air when nothing else was on but Korean baseball.

16 NBA players test positive as restart nears

Quote:
That was a 5.3% rate of positive tests leaguewide. The league did not announce results of testing on staffers and other members of team travel parties, all of whom are also part of the mandatory testing program.

FC Dallas withdrew from the MLSisBack tournament due to several players and staff testing positive. MLS is set to resume play next week in Orlando. Like the NBA, players and staff are staying in Disney World(Swan and Dolphin hotels).

"The seven positive tests account for 5.1% of the [WNBA] league. The league's positive rate trails the NHL's 8.8% and NBA's 7.1% but exceeds the MLB's 1.2%, as of the most recent rounds of testing."

https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/sports/nbcsports/wnba-records-seven-positive-coronavirus-cases-during-mandatory-testing/2353474/

Those numbers are players and don't include coaches, staff, etc.

It's been reported that no coaches or staff members have tested positive.

At least 7 MLB staff and multiple NHL staff have tested positive. BTW, one of the MLB players to test positive is Delino Deshields Jr, Diamond's brother.
