Bucks co-owner: Vote on NBA season could come next week

We may soon learn the fate of the NBA season suspended since March 11 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

On Thursday, Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry told CNBC that the league’s board of governors, which has a call scheduled for Friday, could vote on how the season will resume some time next week.

Lasry confirmed multiple reports that Orlando's Walt Disney World Resort is the favorite to host teams and that games won't have fans inside venues because of the virus outbreak. Lasry wasn't able to say how many clubs will be involved in the season's completion:

"I think at the end of the day, we’ll be in Orlando at Disney," Lasry said. "The question is going to be will we have all 30 teams there or will we have 24? (Or) whatever the number will end up being. But hopefully, by the middle of July, we start playing again."

While speaking with "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" on Tuesday, National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts tempered her optimism regarding union members returning to play amid the pandemic: "I've gotten some recent concerns expressed by players now that babies, children, have been infected (by the coronavirus). Heightened concerns have come into the conversation."

On Tuesday, Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard told Yahoo Sports he only wants to play if the ninth-place Trail Blazers have a realistic chance of qualifying for a postseason tournament. 

Meanwhile, the NHL has reportedly informed players its training camps won't open until at least July 10, leading up to a 24-team format used to crown a Stanley Cup champion.
