Dallas Mavericks fans are going to be without basketball for an extended period. Here is a look at the latest update from Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Dallas Mavericks defeated the Denver Nuggets at the American Airlines Center on March 11. The NBA decided to suspend its season because of the coronavirus during that game. It was a wild night in Dallas. Boban Marjanovic dropped a career-high 31 points in the win to top it all off.

Every thing is in limbo now. The season is suspended indefinitely. Nobody knows when or if play will resume. There are other questions too, such as will the NBA jump right into the playoffs? If not, how many regular season games are they going to play? And the list goes on.

Adrian Wojnarowski offered this update on Sunday evening.

Woj did not stop his bombs there. He also tweeted that the G-League season is expected to be done for the year, and players are allowed to leave their cities during the stoppage.

That included an indefinite ban on practices in the short-term. Players can come in and work out, but there are no organized team activities.

Obviously, that is a lot to unpack. Everyone is going to be without basketball and all sports for an extended period of time. It is important to remember to remain safe. Stay inside, wash your hands, and help stop this disease from spreading.

Everyone still seems optimistic that there will be basketball at some point. Bobby Marks put together a possible timeline for fans.

That would certainly shake things up a bit. Remember, that is not official at this point. It will be interesting to see if the league goes with that. Starting the season with the Christmas Day games would be a massive change. A lot of options are likely on the table as they face this unprecedented challenge.
