Welcome to another roundup, where we gather all of LA sports’ biggest stories of the day!
Major League Baseball and the Dodgers both announced today that the 2020 All-Star Game has officially been canceled due to the ongoing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. Los Angeles has instead been awarded the 2022 game, with Atlanta hosting in 2021 on schedule. This change in schedule was no surprise to Dodgers fans and will give plenty of time for the virus to die down before gathering 56,000 strong to enjoy an exhibition between the world’s biggest stars.
In basketball news, the Los Angeles Clippers are in the midst of a shutdown due to a positive COVID-19 test, which makes things just a bit harder. The team is hoping for a deep playoff run this season thanks to a loaded roster, but it may be a new addition who makes the biggest difference. Marcus Morris has been identified as a potential X-factor for the team thanks to his size and versatility. The Clippers will need Morris to be at his best against the bigger teams in the West, including the LA Lakers. We are only a few weeks away from the Orlando games, and we couldn’t be more excited!
