The NBA and NBPA are finalizing an agreement on a set of health and safety protocols for the upcoming season.
The protocols will require unvaccinated players to be under many of the same restrictions that the entire league played under for the vast majority of last season.
Vaccinated players, on the other hand, will have far fewer restrictions.
Unvaccinated players must undergo daily testing prior to entering a team facility, participating in team-organized activities, or interacting with other players and Tier 1 personnel. They will also have to undergo lab-based game-day testing, as they did last season.
Unvaccinated players will be required to quarantine for seven days no matter what if they have a close contact.
The NBA has approximately a 90 percent vaccine rate among players.
