The lockout has started doing real damage to the NBA's calendar.
Players won't report at the usual time. The preseason won't start as scheduled.And more cancellations could be necessary without a new labor deal soon.
Out of time to keep everything intact, the NBA postponed training camps indefinitely and canceled 43 preseason games Friday because it has not reached an agreement with players.
This news broke yesterday and it shouldn't really come as a surprise. By all accounts the owners and players aren't any closer to coming to an agreement and NBA players seem content to just go play overseas, at least for now. The regular season is scheduled to begin November 1st.
