Players can return to team facilities in states such as Georgia, home of the Atlanta Hawks, for voluntary individual workouts as soon as next week, however, teams will remain prohibited from holding group workouts or organized team activities, sources said.

States such as Texas, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Florida will be lifting stay-at-home restrictions in the coming days.  All are home to NBA franchises.

In markets in which more restrictive governance of stay-at-home orders remain in place, the NBA is telling teams the league will work with franchises to help find alternative arrangements for their players, sources said.

There remains no set timeline as to when, or if, the season will restart.

Slap Shots has learned a Return to Play Committee established by the league and the union has conducted a pair of conference calls over the past three days with regularly scheduled “meetings” to follow.

We’re told the discussions thus far have not honed in on details as much as concepts. But the details will determine not only whether the NHL can develop a pragmatic plan in the midst of a pandemic, but whether the players will agree to it.

A shutdown following a restart would likely be more damaging to the sport than outright cancellation of the remainder of 2019-20.
So would a scenario under which multiple players would have to be replaced by AHL call-ups from expanded 30-man rosters after testing positive. If the NHL is going to do this, it’s going to have to present a credible product.
