    Not a direct answer to your question, but a recent article published a week ago by the University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy addressed only North American pro athletes who contracted inflammatory heart disease after a COVID infection [i.e., focusing only on mild cases, and nothing to say about hospitalizations]. The article includes the following:

    "Inflammatory heart disease was [found to be] rare among North American professional athletes after mild or asymptomatic COVID-19, affecting only 0.6%, according to a study published yesterday in JAMA Cardiology. Led by researchers from Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and major North American sports leagues and players' associations, the multicenter study involved cardiac imaging of 789 pro athletes recovered from COVID-19 from May to October 2020.

    "Forty percent of the athletes had mild or no symptoms, and none were severely ill [the fact that they were studying folks who already "had recovered" suggests that seriously ill folks were left out of the group selected to be followed]. None of the athletes who underwent cardiac testing and returned to play had an adverse cardiac event as of late December.

    "While abnormal cardiac test results were found in 3.8% of the athletes, only 5 of 789 (0.6%) were diagnosed as having inflammatory heart disease after further evaluation with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and stress tests. The five athletes, none of whom had preexisting heart disease, were restricted from participation as a result."

    Duke has shut down MBB for the year. Virginia and Kansas have had positive tests in their MBB programs and have withdrawn from their conference tournaments.

    Teams have until Saturday night @ 11pm EST to report if they're unavailable for the tournament, per the NCAA.

    CBS/Turner will make the tourney happen, even if teams have tryouts. They cannot financially afford to lose another tourney. There is too much money involved.

    Duke wasn't going to make it anyway unless they won the ACC tourney. The league wasn't powerful enough to erase their damaging losses.

    Think I read somewhere that NCAA can replace teams until 16 March. If teams declare they are unable to play after that the game will be forfeited no replacements.

    Then NCAA threw out you need 5 players to play a game. LOL is that anything new?

    We will learn a lot by what happen with Virginia and Kansas. The question that will be answered is will all the players that past 7 straight Covid tests from Kansas and Virginia be allowed to go to the NCAA tournament and leave the players or staff that don't behind?

    It's probably a 2 tier thing

    5 players and a coach? Play on

    Less than that - get replaced

    Though it would be weird if lower seed teams get byes for the first round if more than 4 teams fail COVID protocols between seeding and game-time.

    NCAA Tournament rules say: Programs can elect to travel in smaller groups if some members of the school's party are ruled out due to positive tests or contact tracing.
