The NBA is adjusting its rules regarding players’ travel during the coronavirus pandemic.
The league has informed its 30 teams that players can begin traveling outside of their home market beginning Monday, with the requirements that they provide their whereabouts, remain at home and practice social distancing, according to the Athletic.
The report also states the team is permitted to pay for certain travel and have encouraged players to check in with their team daily for health or basketball updates through platforms such as Skype or FaceTime.
The NBA was the first professional sports league to suspended its season after Jazz forward Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19 and, later, teammate Donovan Mitchell and Pistons forward Christian Wood.
Teams expected to be under self-isolation or quarantine must remain so until they have been cleared by a medical professional, according to ESPN. The Knicks, Celtics, Raptors, Pistons and Cavaliers had been asked by the league to self-quarantine for two weeks because they played the Jazz recently.
The change comes after the Centers for Disease Control recommended that gatherings of 50 people or more be avoided or canceled, which has NBA owners and executives bracing for a best-case return to play in mid-to-late June, and a worst case of an entirely lost season, according to ESPN.
