The National Basketball Association has laid out its plans to conduct coronavirus testing as 22 teams prepare to restart the 2019-2020 season in July.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the league will require Covid-19 testing for teams from June 23 to June 30 as part of the league’s health and safety initiative to begin play.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that players from outside of the United States will need to report to their home team markets by June 15 while players in the states will need to report by June 22.
Both reporters say the league is now targeting July 30 as the start date to the season.
The NBA has not responded to CNN’s request for details regarding these reports.
