Pat Riley is not expected to join the heat when the NBA season resumes
Pat Riley, president of Miami Heat, is not expected to join the team if the NBA decides to restart the 2019/20 season.
League commissioner Adam Silver decided to suspend the game on March 11 after Rudy Gobert, the Utah Jazz star center, tested positive for COVID-19 and the situation remains uncertain given the current pandemic. However, they also seem to be moving towards a restart in late July Play at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
If this turns out to be the case, according to Ira Winderman, Riley will not participate in the heat in the bladder.
Winderman wrote in the Sun Sentinel::
“For the heat, Riley, in consultation with the team’s medical staff and the league, will have the ultimate call of who’s in and who’s out.” The irony is that Riley, who turned 75 in March, is expected to monitor the team remotely in South Florida. “
COVID-19 is considered particularly lethal to seniors, and 75-year-old Riley falls into such a category. From a physical point of view, it would be smartest to stay away from team matters.
