UPDATE: We’ve got more good news from the NBA. Adam Silver and the Board of Governors are optimistic that basketball will return in 2019-20.

The NBA has started gauging its players as to whether or not they’d like to finish out the rest of this season, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The League is texting some players ‘yes or no’ if they’d like to try and complete the 2019-20 season, which has been put on hold since March 11 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The NBPA is responsible for the surveys that are apparently being sent to teams and their entire rosters. Woj has heard that a few different questions have been posed to teams and players, including “Do you want the season to start again?”

The NBA is clearly trying to get feedback from the entire League before making any decisions pertaining to a return. Last week, commissioner Adam Silver held a press conference outlining some of the potential plans the NBA could put into effect to help kickstart the regular season again. We could also see the season go right into the postseason, but that would take some more thinking to figure out a fair way to proceed.
