Lakers Set Target Date For Reopening Facility

The Lakers have set a target date for reopening their facility. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter links), the team is expecting to open on May 16 under the NBA’s protocols.

The franchise continues to work with the appropriate government and health officials to ensure the safety of its players and staff, Charania adds.

California’s stay-at-home order is in place through May 15. It was previously reported that several NBA teams plan on opening up this week, with the Rockets, Blazers, Cavaliers, and Nuggets all in position to open their doors on Friday.

Lakers coach Frank Vogel tells Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times (Twitter link) that he isn’t worried about any competitive advantage the other teams may gain from reopening their facilities early.
