Unvaccinated NBA Players Will Not Be Allowed To Play In Cities With Local Restrictions

Unvaccinated NBA players will not be able to participate in games held in cities with local restrictions, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. Only players with a medical or religious exemption will be able to get around the requirement.

“Unvaccinated NBA players in markets with local requirements — such as NYC (Knicks, Nets) and SF (Warriors) — will not be allowed to enter home arenas or facilities for games or team activities conducted there unless there’s approved medical or religious exemption,” Charania explained in a tweet, Wednesday.
