NBA Will Not Penalize Players If They Choose Not To Return To Play This Season


The NBA Board of Governors along with the Players Union have come to an agreement that the 2019-20 season will resume at Disney World in Orlando. However, the 2020-21 season will feature a lot of back-to-back games, and many more instances of four games in five nights – which can cause issues in terms of getting proper rest for players. 

Additionally, the question of whether a player feels comfortable returning to play or not needs to be addressed as well.  The pandemic that the country is still dealing with means that some players may not feel comfortable returning to Orlando and finishing the season. If that is the case, the league will not penalize that player, but that specific player will lose out on a portion of his salary for those games missed.
