This should come as welcome news to NBA fans.

Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie recently took to Twitter and responded to a guy who stated that the NBA season would resume on June 21st.

Dinwiddie hit back and stated that was just for practice and the actual date was July 15th.

On March 11, 2020, the National Basketball Association announced the suspension of the 2019–20 season following Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert testing positive for the coronavirus.

Gobert had come down with an illness before a scheduled basketball game against the Oklahoma City Thunder that day at Chesapeake Energy Arena and the game was canceled. The following day, Gobert’s teammate Donovan Mitchell also tested positive for the virus.

Both have since recovered.
