The NBA is currently in the process of reopening team facilities within the protocol and stay-at-home orders of local and state governments.
With the league in the midst of an over two-month-long suspension, the league is looking at measures to resume play while also prioritizing the safety of its players and team staff members. Commissioner Adam Silver recently led a conference call pertaining to what a re-opening may look like amid the backdrop of the pandemic.
Additionally, there has been reporting that the NBA, headed by the Minnesota Timberwolves, is partnering with the Mayo Clinic in an antibody study to help aid research into the understanding of the novel coronavirus.
