ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the NBA confirmed that LeBron James will not be suspended for violating league policy. It was said that the nature of the event did not rise to the threat level needed to take such action.
LeBron James won’t be suspended for protocols violation, sources tell ESPN. Nature of event didn’t rise to a threat level of virus spread, as described in @McTen’s story below. Suns-Lakers Game 1 on Sunday.
Some people were a bit concerned that the NBA would hand down a mandatory quarantine for King James. That could cause him to miss some of the Lakers’ first-round Playoff series against the Suns. It appears that no quarantine time or suspension is coming James’ way.
Now LA Lakers fans can breathe a sigh of relief on this matter. LeBron James did go to a maskless party to rub elbows with some elite company, but that wasn’t enough to warrant any disciplinary or precautionary action on the NBA’s part.
Are you happy that LeBron James won’t have to miss any time off the court? Sound off in the comment!
