Clippings: Lou Williams is on Day 4 of his Monopoly binge

As the NBA processes the available information regarding the coronavirus, players are left to entertain themselves while they self-quarantine.

The NBA continues to venture into the unknown with regards to how to handle the coronavirus pandemic. On Monday’s episode of The Woj Pod, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN tried to answer questions about a potential resumption of the NBA season, but he wasn’t able to provide much clarity.

Wojnarowski said that the league “would like to play some more regular season games” if the season comes back from suspension, since those games would benefit regional TV networks and potentially impact postseason standings. However, he acknowledged that the league could immediately restart with the playoffs when he said, “I don’t think anything is off the table.”

Wojnarowski sounded most definitive when he said that there would likely be no NBA draft combine this year, given the high volume of players and team executives present at such an event. It’s worth noting that the Clippers do not own their 2020 first-round pick, since they sent it to New York in the Marcus Morris trade.

The league is prepared to hold a call on Tuesday with the commissioner and team governors to continue to address the situation. The Clippers have been mostly silent on social media during the hiatus, but we do know that Lou Williams continues to play Monopoly every night. We also know that he had to cancel his annual Memorial Day Party in Atlanta due to the CDC’s guidelines about gatherings of more than 50 people.
