The financial effects of the COVID-19 are now starting to take effect. Pallacanestro Virtus Roma (Italy, Serie A) has not paid any player salaries since the beginning of the season. Therefore, there was a symbolic protest yesterday in the game between Germani Brescia and Virtus Roma. The Virtus Roma players refused to play for the first 24 seconds, which resulted in a turnover. In the end, Virtus Roma won the game with 70-64.
