Oklahoma City Thunder guard George Hill appeared to take concern Tuesday with the NBA’s health and safety procedure to mitigate the danger of contracting the coronavirus.
After the Thunder’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs, said he didn’t “comprehend” some of the rules that were put into place. He said it didn’t make sense to him that they could play side-by-side for 48 minutes but the league prohibited mingling with each other in the postgame. The league also bars groups from having non-team visitors on the roadway, with no taking a trip outside the hotels either.

If it’s that major, then possibly we shouldn’t be playing. But it’s life; no one’s going to have the ability to just cancel their whole life for this game.”
