Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease supports the NBA’s plan to restart the season. 22 teams would play 8 regular-season games with everyone involved being tested for the virus and quarantined. Fauci said, I actually looked at the plan. Essentially testing everybody, make sure you start with a baseline of everybody being negative. Under the restart, the NBA playoffs would extend into October.
