London Games in Jeopardy?

When the Nets played the Raptors in London last March, their two games were wrapped inside a nine-day bubble: three days of rest and travel before a back-to-back, then four days of rest and travel after. With the NBA's condensed schedule, is it likely this year's games, vs. the Magic on March 7 and 8, will go on?

The general belief is that they will have to be sacrificed with the two games being played not in London but in Newark. As Colm Heaney of the Daily Mirror reports from London, "Given the need for expedience this season, a transatlantic jaunt is a big ask ... Does the Players Association want some of its members undertaking the extra travel and other demands of a London trip on top of an already condensed schedule?"
