Netease Sports reported on October 16:
The new season CBA will officially start tomorrow. Affected by the new crown epidemic, the availability of foreign aid for each team is not small. At present, only 1 person from Mayo has completed the official registration. In addition, there are 5 foreign aids who have practiced with the team, one foreign aid has ended quarantine and has not yet co-trained, and 14 foreign aids who have come to China and are still under quarantine have signed contracts. There are 15 foreign aid people who have not yet come to China.
Among the foreign aid registration information currently publicized on the CBA official website, only
Marshan Brooks and Wilms have been training with the team very early. They also played in the Yao Foundation Charity Match on the evening of October 4th. Not surprisingly, they will play in the first CBA regular season tomorrow. Although Liaoning has confirmed that Mayo participate, their other foreign aid Jonathan Simmons has not yet come to China. Yang Ming revealed in an interview recently that the Liaoning team has a high probability of playing with a single foreign aid lineup in the first stage.
Those who have ended their isolation and practiced with the team
At this stage, foreign aid that has been in isolation in China is also: Hamilton in Beijing, Franklin in Shanxi, Haddadi in Sichuan, and Jones in Jilin. The Guangzhou, Qingdao, and Zhejiang teams have signed 3 foreign aids. They have all arrived in China and are also in isolation. They are expected to miss different games of the regular season at the beginning of the season.
The Jiangsu team started early on the issue of foreign aid but rushed to the late episode. They had already determined that the foreign aid Wells who came to China was infected with the new crown and missed the new season. The team had to re-sign Marcus Hunter; inside and outside aid Devin Williams has not yet entered the country because of a visa. According to team general manager Shi Linjie, Hunter will miss the first stage, and Devin Williams is expected to catch up with the end of the first stage.
Similar to the situation in Jiangsu, Beijing Enterprises, their third foreign aid Andrew Harrison was diagnosed with the new crown and missed the new season. The team's other two foreign aids, Joseph Yang and Mejri, have not yet arrived in China, and it is uncertain when they will rendezvous with the team.
According to regulations, the first phase of the new season, which is from October 17th to November 14th, will implement the "buffer period" policy. During this period, foreign aid teams played 4 quarters and 2 times with foreign aid from all-China teams (Shanghai, Sichuan, Guangzhou, and Tianjin 4 foreign aid teams played in 4 quarters and 3 times); after the "buffer period" ended, the regular season resumed foreign aid. 4 times in 4 quarters (4 teams from Shanghai, Sichuan, Guangzhou and Tianjin played 5 times in 4 quarters).
