Raptors denied permission to play in Canada, head to Tampa

HOCKEY NEWS:
Raptors rejected consent to play in Canada, head to Tampa

TORONTO (AP) – The Toronto Raptors will begin the NBA season next month in Tampa, Florida, due to the fact that of travel constraints the Canadian federal government has actually put in location coming from the pandemic.

The Raptors had actually been taking a look at other websites for numerous weeks, consisting of Daybreak, Florida, the house of the NHL’s Florida Panthers. However with NBA training school less than 2 weeks away and a season beginning on Dec. 22, the Raptors were pushed to make a decision.

Rather, they will play house video games at Amalie Arena, house of the Stanley Cup champ Tampa Bay Lightning.

“Ultimately, the current public health situation facing Canadians, combined with the urgent need to determine where we will play means that we will begin our 2020-21 season in Tampa, Florida,” Raptors President Masai Ujiri stated in a declaration Friday.

A main acquainted with the Canadian federal government’s choice informed The Associated Press there is excessive COVID-19 flowing in the United States to permit cross-border travel that is not important.

The authorities, speaking on condition of privacy and not licensed to talk openly about the matter, stated there’s a possibility that the choice might be examined next year.

The Raptors, the NBA’s only Canadian group, and the league required an exemption to a requirement that anybody getting in Canada for unnecessary factors should separate for 2 week. The U.S.-Canada border stays closed to unnecessary travel.

Dr. Andrew Morris, a teacher of transmittable illness at the University of Toronto and the medical director of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program at Sinai-University Health Network, stated the Canadian federal government made the best choice.

“With the current situation it is almost impossible for the government to reasonably sanction travel back and forth travel outside a bubble,” Morris stated.

So, for the Raptors, it’s now time for Florida to be home away from home again.

Toronto was the first NBA team to arrive in Florida last summer to begin preparations for the restarted season inside a bubble at Walt Disney World near Orlando. The Raptors began with a training camp at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, then went to Disney a couple weeks later – doing so because the virus and travel rules would have kept them from getting their team together in Canada.

And now, they’re on their way back to the Sunshine State. The league will release the first half of the schedule around Dec. 1; the second half of the schedule is likely to come in January or February, and there is a possibility that the team – for now, anyway – could return to Toronto at that point.

“So we’ll be away from our home and our fans for now,” Ujiri wrote in his statement. “They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. I’m not sure that’s possible for us – we love Toronto and Canada, and we know we have the best fans in the NBA. For now, I’ll ask you to cheer for us from afar, and we’ll look forward to the day we are all together again.”

The Raptors will remain in the NBA’s Atlantic Division. Assuming the Raptors play all 36 of their home games this season in Tampa, seven teams – Atlanta, Miami, Washington, Orlando, Charlotte, Brooklyn and Philadelphia will be scheduled to visit there twice. The league’s other 15 teams will all go there once.

The plan for the Raptors to come to Sunrise, about 30 miles north of Miami, was fairly far along as well. The team had worked out several arrangements with the NHL’s Panthers, including even sharing the club’s practice facility. Other U.S. cities known to have had interest in serving as the Raptors’ temporary home were: Nashville, Tennessee; Newark, New Jersey; and Kansas City, Missouri.

The Canadian government denied the Blue Jays’ request to play in Toronto this year because health officials didn’t think it was safe for players to travel back and forth from the U.S., one of the countries hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic. The number of cases in both countries, but particularly in the U.S. has surged since.

The Blue Jays failed to persuade the federal government to grant exemptions and played home games in Buffalo, New York, this year.

The Canadian government required a comprehensive public health plan and written support from local health officials. The plan was reviewed by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
