As the NBA continues its preparations to resume the remaining Basketball matches in Orlando, the league along with the National Basketball players Association is working on the same to finalize the plan.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, there is a provision that will not need players to take part in the remaining season. Players don’t have to miss the game otherwise their salaries will get hampered.

Among all the issues to be agreed upon, per Wojranowski is health aspects, family concerns, and social justice due to COVID-19. If a player has any medical issue he will provide a separate doctor for the examination. Even if he is cleared to play and he develops any serious medical issue he will not be forced to play and there will be no repercussions on players in that regard.

The 2019-20 season will resume in Orlando from beginning on July 31st. A total of 22 teams will be playing in the competition out of which 16 teams are in the playoff list and the remaining six teams who are in six games of the playoff spot within each conference.

If reports are to be believed training camps will begin from June 30th. Although other proposals have been discussed and the plan agreed upon provided teams a chance to earn their way into postseason rather than allowing the season to end unceremoniously.

“Although we all know that there are much more meaningful and important issues for our country to focus on at this time, we are extremely grateful for the opportunity to play basketball again,” said Wizards GM Tommy Sheppard in a statement. 

He further added that “Our players and coaches have done a tremendous job of staying ready and active from a basketball perspective … there is still much work to be done, but we are excited to be able to return to the court and represent our DC Family.”

All the NBA fans will be eagerly waiting for the season to resume let’s see the remaining matches which will be played once the season resumes how much animosity it generates in the mind and heart of all ardent football fans.
