In the midst of their most successful season in almost 10 years, the Los Angeles Lakers, in addition to the 29 other teams in the NBA, will have their season put on hold after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19, or the coronavirus, on Wednesday night.

The NBA was expected to take some form of action in response to the threat of coronavirus, but after one of its star players tested positive for the virus that has killed thousands of people across the globe, it was clear that suspending the season was the only logical solution. There is currently no timetable for when the season is expected to return, which has left basketball fans to wonder: What’s next?

Truthfully, no one knows for sure, but our hosts Jacob and Christian did their best to try and come up with an answer and react to this unprecedented situation on this week’s episode of “Can U Dig It?”
