The NBA has been ramping up its preparations to get back underway of late, and perhaps the biggest domino was knocked over on Tuesday when the league gave its players a 100+ page document that explained a ton of things to them. We, obviously, can’t look into every single thing that it talks about, but it went over a ton of procedures in the case that someone tests positive.
If they do, that person will be put into ‘isolation housing,’ which will be completely different from the regular room he would have stayed at. Two negative tests must passed before he can return to the ‘campus.’ In order to help identify potentially stricken individuals, the league will use very detailed video technology to see if a positive player had been able to possibly pass it on to others. While there is plenty of interest, another thing that came out from the document was that players must decide by June 24th if they are going to go to Orlando or not. While most who do not will be docked a significant amount of pay, it has been made clear to them that individuals that are “protected” and “excused” will be taken care of. How exactly remains to be seen.
