The G League has suspended its 2019-20 season, effective after Wednesday’s games, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in light of the NBA’s announcement of a similar move earlier tonight.

The NBA has suspended its season “until further notice” after a Utah Jazz player tested positive Wednesday for the coronavirus.
