And it'll be worse for all the teams in Europe who don't have as much capital behind them, while stay-at-home rules are even more strict than in the U.S.

Just bad luck, but it's probably a smarter move for him to finish out his degree and hope this all changes in a year. Guys are going to be really rusty without summer workouts happening. But what gyms are open?
Iíve read they will have to use their game film

There was an interview with the Madsen twins not too long ago. They said they'd be playing outdoors. I imagine a lot of guys will practice/play at the local park (and hope the parks don't get close to).

Many parks are open right now, but most playgrounds are not. The risk isn't with being indoors as much as it is with athletes getting physical with each other. There are 14 cases in the NBA right now. I don't think a college is going to support risking a student's life so they can improve their game.
