Report: Lakers and Clippers will use Zoom for team workouts

As the NBA’s hiatus continues, players remaining in shape is becoming increasingly more important.

Though physical distancing prevents people from working out alongside one another, the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers will utilize technology to bring their teams together during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Stadium’s Shams Charania, the Lakers and Clippers are using Zoom, a video chat and conference call service, for team workouts. Charania said the Clippers have already been using Zoom, and the Lakers are expected to begin using it soon.

With Zoom, each person has their own mini window and can video chat with others; it’s essentially a virtual meeting. The Lakers can use it not only to stay in shape, but also to maintain team chemistry.

The timetable for the NBA’s return is uncertain. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban recently said on ESPN’s “Get Up” that he has “no idea” when the league will resume play. Cuban had previously said he hoped the league could return by the middle of May.
