Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reported that the Miami Heat are among NBA teams that are working to financially assist the arena workers who will lose income due to the league suspension — which NBA commissioner Adam Silver said would last at least 30 days.

Aside from the NBA league suspension, all events at AmericanAirlines Arena have been postponed or cancelled. Dallas Mavericks governor Mark Cuban first said he would develop a plan for the workers of the American Airlines Center. The Cavaliers and Hawks soon joined in. Kevin Love also pledged to give $100,000 to arena workers.
In his announcement, Silver said that “we intend to resume the season, if and when it becomes safe for all concerned.”
