Some progress is better than no progress.

We’re inching our way to some real actual basketball. According to Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey, the team will reopen their practice facilities starting on Monday.

Of course, it’s not a full reopen. The league has released guidelines for teams looking to get back into a practice routine, and that means no more than four players in the facility at one time, large group activities are still banned, and head and assistant coaches are still barred from attending player workouts according to a memo distributed a few weeks ago.

The league has yet to make a decision on when/if play will resume, however, there’s optimism that at the very least, the NBA could still have a playoff this summer at a single site without fans. Both Las Vegas and Orlando have been rumored to be potential host sites.

For now, though, some players will be back in the building, and even though it’s baby steps, it’s steps nonetheless. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that it won’t be long until we have something to watch, write about, and read about.
