    We are a week into the NBA's indefinite suspension of its season since the world copes with coronavirus. It is likely to be a while before we get real basketball but we've got NBA 2K20 to fill in a few of the gaps. While the league is hoping to return for the playoffs, if not an abbreviated remainder of their regular season, we don't know if it is going to happen.
