Many NBA teams are gradually returning to practice facilities (still voluntarily, and following social distancing guidelines), but per ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk, the Clippers are not among them.

This makes sense. By all accounts, the Clippers have been taking especial caution during the COVID-19 pandemic, and are unlikely to let up now, when cases and deaths from the virus remain high. They will probably come back to practice at some point, and it might even be soon-ish, but with the return of the NBA still nowhere in sight, there’s truly no hurry.

The Clippers have been keeping connected with frequent Zoom calls and other communication, so there’s no need to worry about a disconnect on that more personal end. And, even if they return to the practice facility a bit later than other teams, nobody is practicing as a unit, so the team chemistry won’t be more notably set back than any other roster.

When the Clippers do return to the practice facility, we will keep you posted on who practices, and what that means for the players and team going forward. For now, keep on staying safe!
