There have been no North American team sports of note since Rudy Gobert paused the NBA season in March.
Baseball and basketball seem set to return in late July. But the big one is football and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases boss Dr. Anthony Fauci has some serious doubts is if the NFL can return this year.
Football may not happen this year, Dr. Anthony Fauci tells @drsanjaygupta.— New Day (@NewDay) June 18, 2020
“Unless players are essentially in a bubble – insulated from the community and they are tested nearly every day – it would be very hard to see how football is able to be played this fall.” pic.twitter.com/mDcTRMBucU
"It would be very hard to see how football is able to be played this fall," Fauci said. "If there is a second wave, which is certainly a possibility and which would be complicated by the predictable flu season, football may not happen this year."
The NFL has repeatedly stated that they plan to play a regular schedule this season.
Do you think the NFL will suit up this year?
