The NBA season has been on hold since Rudy Gobert and other players tested positive for the Coronavirus, but things are about to change soon.
As of now, the NBA is set to return on July 31 in Orlando, Florida, even though some players are trying to stop that date.
During the pandemic, teams were not allowed to practice or use their facilities, but it seems the Los Angeles Lakers found a loophole, and have been scrimmaging during COVID-19.
During an interview with Bill Simmons, New Orleans Pelicans guard JJ Redick discussed the "secret" practices and scrimmages that have been going down in Beverly Hills.
All right, so in regards to the Lakers, I’ve heard similar things. Obviously nothing has been posted on social media providing us with the evidence that we need, but there is a gentleman, I think his house is in Bel-Air, who has a Staples Center replica in his backyard. It’s a full-court, locker rooms, weight rooms, steam shower, whatever you want. I’ve worked out there before. My assumption is those guys are working out there, that would make a lot of sense.
