The NBA will require Game Day testing beginning on December 1st for players, coaches, front office and personnel for anyone who has yet to receive COVID-19 vaccine booster shot.

For anyone who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, the time period for a booster is at least six months ago. For the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, it is at least two months ago.

The NBA had several players test positive for COVID-19 last week.

Some teams already have been planning for players to receive booster shots when available.
