The NBA is proceeding toward resuming play.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver is taking his time determining answers. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
On a call with the NBA GM's this afternoon, Adam Silver confirmed that Friday's meeting of the Board of Governors would not include a formal vote on a return-to-play plan, sources tell ESPN. Talks on a plan will continue into the weekend.

National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts, via Ramona Shelburne of ESPN:
“It’s time. It’s time,” Roberts told ESPN. “It’s been two and a half months of, ‘What if?’ My players need some level of certainty. I think everybody does.”
It’s important to remember: Certainty is difficult to obtain amid the coronavirus pandemic. Whatever the NBA decides, coronavirus could foil the plan. Everyone involved should remain flexible.
But the NBA should at least soon reveal its plan so everyone who’d be involved – and those who wouldn’t – can prepare.
