The surging number of coronavirus cases in Florida, which posted a record high Saturday for the third consecutive day, has raised concerns in many corners of the NBA, from players to team executives to the league office itself, as it prepares to resume play in Orlando next month.
In all, the state has set records for single-day cases becoming a national hot spot along with Texas and Arizona. Some staffers speculated it might be better to get positive cases out of the way now, because players can quarantine before going to Orlando. Others cautioned that positive cases will set back their readiness to play games.
