As a result of COVID-19 guidelines established by the state of California, the Los Angeles Lakers are planning on welcoming fans back to Staples Center beginnging on April 15 for their game against the Boston Celtics.

Due to the problems in trying to get the highly contagious virus under control, the Lakers have played their games at Staples Center this season without fans in attendance.
