NBA teams are expected to play games without fans in its arenas, according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski also reports that teams were considering taking a hiatus instead, but the consensus was to play closed-door games, like the Golden State Warriors and Brooklyn Nets will do in San Francisco tomorrow.

The league is looking to take a proactive approach to the coronavirus pandemic, which has rocked the North American sports landscape this week, affecting the NHL, NBA, MLS, MLB, NCAA, and international tournaments.

There’s just over a month remaining in the NBA regular season, which concludes on April 15.
