Though the NBA got positive news on Thursday that the 2019-20 season would resume, the NBA G League did not.
In a statement, the NBA G League announced that it would be canceling the remainder of the 2019-20 season, including the playoffs. The league had halted action on March 12, just 16 days before the regular season was scheduled to come to an end. The Capital City Go-Go, the Wizards' G League affiliate, were 22-21 when play paused.
“While canceling the remainder of our season weighs heavily on us, we recognize that it is the most appropriate action to take for our league,” NBA G League president Shareef Abdur-Rahim said in the release. “I extend my sincere gratitude to NBA G League players and coaches for giving their all to their teams and fans this season. And to our fans, I thank you and look forward to resuming play for the 2020-21 season.”
At this point in time, there is no concrete plan for when the NBA G League's 2020-21 season will begin. Coronavirus concerns coupled with the fact that the NBA will have to delay the start of its next season most likely mean it will be a little while before a date is determined.
Awards for the 2019-20 season, including Most Valuable Player, Coach of the Year and Rookie of the Year, will be announced in the coming weeks, according to the press release.
