The FBI announced there was no hate crime against Bubba Wallace at Talladega over the weekend where a noose was found in Wallace’s garage. The investigators reported the noose had been in the garage since last October where it was used as a garage door pull. In addition, the report claimed that no one could have known Wallace would be assigned to that particular garage. Wallace commented on the report saying,  “The image that I have, that I have seen, of what was hanging in my garage is not a garage loop. I’ve been racing all of my life, we’ve raced out of hundreds of garages that have never had garage pulls like that… It was a noose. Whether it was tied in 2019 or whatever, it was a noose. It wasn’t directed at me, but someone tied a noose. It is a noose.”

According to reports, the NFL might allow individual teams and cities to determine how many fans will be allowed in the stadium. The NFL appears determined to allow fans to avoid losing billions in revenue. It’s estimated that the NFL could lose $3 billion if the season is played in empty stadiums.

The Los Angeles Lakers Avery Bradley announced he will not play when the NBA season resumes at Disney World. According to ESPN, Bradley is concerned about his family’s health particularly his six-year-old son who has a history of respiratory illnesses.

For those players reporting to Orlando, the NBA will have ring data monitors (called Oura rings) which can potentially access COVID-19 through heart rate and heart rate variability.
