When the coronavirus was declared a pandemic, the NBA and team owners were discussing potential options at this stage of the 2019-20 season.

While it appeared teams were prepared to play games without their fans, that quickly changed prior to the Utah Jazz-Oklahoma City Thunder game.

Rudy Gobert and eventually Donovan Mitchell tested positive for the coronavirus and the league immediately suspended the 2019-20 season.

Although it was initially unclear, the season reportedly will be suspended for at least 30 days for now, according to Bruce Arthur of Toronto Star:

With this current timetable of at least 30 days, owners are supportive of commissioner Adam Silver’s decision, via Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

In response to the news, the Los Angeles Lakers did not practice, but players are welcomed to come into the UCLA Health Training Center for treatment.

LeBron James, who addressed the possibility of playing games without fans, reacted to the season being suspended and the first three months of 2020.

More details as it becomes available.
