The Israeli basketball Winner League expects an answer today on a plan to resume play, according to Josh Halickman of SportsRabbi.com.
The league submitted the proposal to the nation’s Health Ministry. Per Halickman, “If the league continues and public gatherings will be approved by the PM, they want to have fans in attendance.”
If fans can’t attend, the league will not resume, Halickman reported.
Swingman James Young and shooting guard Manny Harris were among the former NBA players who had been playing in Israel when the league suspended play. Young led the league in scoring at 20.5 points per game.
