Even with the NBA season suspended, Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra still talks with his coaching staff every other day. Except now, it’s on Zoom.

Spoelstra spoke on a conference call with local reporters Wednesday afternoon. He said he meets with his assistant coaches to plan for a possible resumption of the NBA season.

Heat players and staff organize workouts over the Zoom platform as well. Spoelstra also said that Miami players are “itching to play” and that everyone would be open to playing in empty arenas.

With the NBA season on hiatus, Derrick Jones Jr. will compete against Kevin Durant in the NBA 2K Players Tournament.
