I know I brought up how some players have returned the same week. Supposedly, OBJ will be back in the next day or two. This is not official and was just a tweet by him saying his tests were negative. He tested positive on Tuesday so if it’s true, he will have a quick return to the lineup. I’ll have to trust Breer’s numbers on the % of players and how long it takes since that what he does for a living. I just know some players have returned in a few days. Maybe it was a false positive in those cases, who knows.
Breer is talking about how there is a risk moving the game, but I have to believe that the league is expecting multiple players from the infected teams to return before Tuesday. There of course is no guarantee and he is right that more players could test positive before Tuesday. But I would also like to think the league is in contact with the teams to know which players are vaccinated and asymptomatic which would give them a better chance to test negative. Maybe I’m wrong and they are completely winging it and just hoping a miracle happens.
I do agree with what was said in the podcast that while it sucks this is happening at all but especially during critical games for the playoffs, maybe getting it out of the way will give them an advantage the last 3 games when other teams are having their outbreaks.
