While the sides can talk about what’s next, there are only so many things that can be done at this point. The resumption of games will depend on everything from the availability of arenas — or smaller spaces games can be played without fans — to how the coronavirus spreads through the nation and when we start to see a slowing of new cases. The financial impacts will depend upon when games resume and how many games are lost.
What owners will get is a range of possibilities on both fronts. There may well be some news out of the meeting, but the biggest question cannot yet have answers.
