“The Thunder Ion is re-opening today for voluntary workouts following the specific requirements and best practices the NBA and health authorities have established.”
Per Royce Young, the Thunder re-opened their facilities this morning to voluntary workouts. It remains to be seen who will participate, but we will update that page as we receive new information.
This was not entirely surprising news, as Oklahoma City was one of the first cities in the country to remove the shelter-at-home policies. Although the decision was met with mixed responses, this gave the Thunder organization the opportunity to re-open. Per the announcement from Adam Silver last week, organizations can re-open if their market eases quarantine policies in the area.
Players in the Thunder organization, including Chris Paul just yesterday, have emphasized their desire to resume basketball. However, they were careful to add that they want proper safety precautions in place beforehand. It’s now the responsibility of the Thunder organization to successfully execute these guidelines.
