The Warriors, league sources say, will be directed to play host to the Nets on Thursday night at Chase Center in a game CLOSED to fans— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) March 11, 2020
The City of San Francisco plans to ban large gatherings of over 1,000 people, including Golden State Warriors games, per Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle. The ban is expected to be for two weeks, which only impacts two Warriors home games: Thursday vs. the Brooklyn Nets and March 25 vs. the Atlanta Hawks. The Dubs have a five-game road trip after Thursday’s game.
The ban is for two weeks. Given that the Warriors has a five-game road trip during that time, they'll only have to figure out what to do for two home games at the moment: tomorrow's Nets game and the March 25 game against the Hawks. https://t.co/mBb1ymNMo9— Connor Letourneau (@Con_Chron) March 11, 2020
It’s unclear if this means Warriors games will be canceled or if the games will operate without any fans, as the NBA has alluded to in recent weeks. They could reschedule games to be played at a later date, but it’s unclear if the coronavirus outbreak will be resolved or at least contained by that time.
