The NBA -- like the rest of the world -- is in the midst of an unprecedented situation.

The season has been suspended for at least the next 30 days in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Will the players continue to get paid, or can the owners withhold paychecks?

The National Basketball Players Association issued a memo Friday morning outlining a possible "doomsday provision," in the collective bargaining agreement, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported.

As Woj's story states:

The CBA includes a clause called the force majeure event clause that includes multiple dramatic scenarios -- including epidemics -- that the league could trigger in the event of a worst-case scenario.

According to Article XXXIX, Section 5 in the CBA, players lose 1/92.6 of their salary for every game missed as a result of a force majeure event -- this refers to events or conditions that make it impossible for the NBA to perform its obligation under the CBA.

Sources say there's been no discussion among the league and NBPA about triggering that provision.

The goal for all parties involved is for the season to resume at some point in the coming months, so there's no reason to fully discuss any doomsday scenarios at this point in time.
