The NFL and college football are watching what is going on with M-L-B and the Miami Marlins. Eight Marlin players and two coaches have tested positive for COVID-19, bringing the total to 14 cases involving the team in recent days. Miami’s home opener tonight has been postponed.

The Saints and other NFL teams begin training camp tomorrow. ESPN reports that according to new protocols, a player who contracts the coronavirus through “high-risk” activity away from team facilities can face team discipline and might not even get paid when in quarantine.

The Brees Dream Foundation has donated five million dollars to Ochsner so that the healthcare system can build health centers in underserved communities in New Orelans and Baton Rouge. In March, Brittany and Drew Brees donated five-million dollars to help feed families impacted by the COVID-19 shutdown.

The New Orleans Pelicans have their final scrimmage game tonight before the re-start. The Pels face the Bucks tonight at 7 PM in a game that can be seen on Fox Sports New Orleans. Zion Williamson can begin practicing with the team tomorrow after returning to the bubble last week. The Pels re-start the season on Thursday against Utah.
