GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The NBA G League, which includes the Grand Rapids Drive, announced Thursday it’s canceling the remainder of its season.

The league had previously suspended its season on March 12 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The regular season was scheduled to conclude on March 28.
