With the NBA temporarily suspending the regular season, the Charlotte Hornets may get the chance to finish the rest of their schedule.

As more information continues to come out about COVID-19, the Charlotte Hornets should get the chance to play the rest of their regular-season games. On Wednesday, the NBA indefinitely suspended the rest of the regular season.

The league decided to suspend the season after two players from the Utah Jazz tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The league’s Board of Governors were split on what to do, as several teams wanted to put games on hiatus, while others wanted to remove fans from being at them.

The Board of Governors held a phone conference on Thursday and talked more on the issue. Later Thursday night, Adam Silver released a letter, stating that the league has temporarily suspended the regular season for at least 30 days.

Based on what Adam Silver said in his letter, teams should be able to finish their regular season schedule. Being able to finish the season opens up a lot of opportunities for the Hornets.

The Hornets are coming off of one of their biggest wins of the season against the Miami Heat. The Hornets trailed by 20 points on Wednesday, but they came back to win the game. A lot of this had to do with the team’s young players.

With this period of rest, the Hornets should be more than ready to finish their regular season. However, will this amount of rest benefit them more than others? The Hornets have primarily switched to using their younger players, so an extra month of preparation should benefit them tremendously.

While this should be something exciting, fans should continue to monitor what the NBA decides to do. More news regarding the hiatus should develop over the coming weeks.
