Welcome to another roundup, where we gather all of LA sports’ biggest stories of the day!
As we wrap up another fourth of July weekend, we also continue to monitor the sports landscape as they near a return. Multiple athletes in both basketball and baseball have opted out of 2020 seasons, but none hit harder for LA than those of Avery Bradley and David Price. While the Lakers already found their replacement, the Dodgers have options to consider when looking for theirs. Will they go with Ross Stripling? How about rookie sensations Dustin May and Tony Gonsolin? The Dodgers have roughly 3 weeks to make a decision before the start of the abbreviated 2020 season.
In football news, the NFL has been rather quiet in their pursuit of carrying out a mostly unchanged season this year. They have watched from the sidelines, analyzing the moves made by the NBA and MLB to see what their tactics should be. This plan has worked out well for them thus far, and the league finally came forward with their proposal for the health and safety measures that teams should take when dealing with COVID-19. The report specifically instructs teams on how to handle positive tests and how long to isolate for. Football is trying to be the first sport to allow fans into stadiums this year, which will require a bit of luck and a lot of preemptive planning. As the premier contact sport, cases may end up being more likely among players. This means that if the Rams and Chargers want to remain on the field, they need to play things incredibly smart.
