NBA Bubble: Players Guest Rules & Guidelines Announced

NBA Bubble: Players Guest Rules & Guidelines Announced

The NBA and NBPA have set their guidelines on player guests starting after the first round of the playoffs. The hope from the National Basketball Association and NBPA with the social justice jerseys was to make a statement addressing systematic racism, social injustice and bring awareness to other worldly issues during the current social justice movement. Players must prove a longstanding relationship with a non-spouse. Most players will be limited to no more than four guests.

The NBA restarted its pandemic-delayed season in late July with 22 of the league's 30 teams inside the proverbial bubble at Disney World outside Orlando.

Other people who are not allowed inside of the bubble include "current/prospective staff or business relationships...including agents, trainers, massage/physical therapists, personal chefs, and tattoo artists".

ESPN has a breakdown of the rules that were recently distributed to players regarding who they can invite as guests. There is no allowance for leaving the campus.

Guests will be able to attend games, with each player being given one ticker per playoff game plus an additional admission for a child, Wojnarowski reported.

Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard scores two of his 61 points against the Mavericks on Tuesday. And it is a nice benefit for the players who have had to be without their families for the last few months.

With the help monitors and electronic bracelets, players are monitored in an effort to maintain social distancing.
