We are not even a month in. People thought the Sixers game should have been postponed rather than them play with 7 guys. This will become more frequent.
Seems like every day the wiretap has some new Covid related news. Latest is:
Maxi Kleber Out 10-14 Days Due To COVID-19 Protocols, Mavs Shut Down Practice Facility
Not even close to how bad it looked for the MLB, plus back then testing was not at the level than it is now. Consider those 'miss-games' like missing games for a sprain ankle or the flu.
Players are now just forced to increase their awareness.
Who cares about baseball? Their rosters are much bigger.
NBA teams are playing with 7 and 8 players, Sixers and now Celts. It is the first month. It was pretty rare to see that for just injuries pre-Covid, now it may become a regular thing.
I noticed Lamar Jackson ran straight off the field after his win today, no shaking hands with any Titans. Likely inspired from the Tatum-Beal scenario. He did come back out the tunnel for a TV interview but stayed distant from others around him, plus a mask.
