New Delhi: The NBA will allow teams in states where stay-at-home orders are lifted to open practice facilities from Friday, more than one month after the coronavirus outbreak forced the suspension of the season.
The person rebounding shots for the player will have to wear a mask and gloves, and have on sterilized sneakers, according to a league memo.
Teams must also thoroughly disinfect any equipment used, from basketballs to weight-room equipment.
Only four players can be in the building at a time, and only one shooting at each basket. No head or assistant coaches can be present; players’ temperatures will be taken and they will answer questions about their health before they enter the building.
Major League Soccer returned to training on Wednesday with strict rules in place, while NASCAR plans to resume competition on May 17 without fans.
