In an unprecedented moment for the NBA, the league announced that it has suspended the 2019-20 season following the conclusion of Wednesday night's games due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The announcement came from the league as the Knicks were in action in Atlanta. The Knicks went on to beat the Hawks 136-131 in overtime, but after the game, all of the talk was about what comes next for the Knicks given the season's uncertain outlook.
"At this point, we're just going to trust what our medical team is telling us and then be very conscious and aware if anybody would happen to have symptoms, and then we know what we do from there," interim head coach Mike Miller told reporters in Atlanta after the game.
"Obviously, I appreciate the diligence, the work that has gone into it. I have completely trusted our medical team and what the NBA is doing, because I know that their first concern is the safety of everybody. It goes way beyond players and coaches. There are so many people that are included in that. So I trust what they're telling us and I continue to just get the information as it comes in and then we'll do as we're instructed to make sure that everybody remains safe."
