Sources: Some NBA players hesitant on restart

As the NBA and NBPA are finalizing terms on a return-to-play plan Wednesday, there’s a faction of players discussing as a group whether restarting the season in the Orlando bubble is a good idea, sources said.

Several dozen players participated in a conference call in the past 24 hours to discuss it, sources said.

The NBA and NBPA are expected to agree on a provision that wouldn’t require players to restart the season, nor subject them to discipline for staying home, sources said. The players would lose a portion of salary for those games missed.

The NBA and NBPA are nearing completion on items needed to reach a final agreement on parameters of a return-to-play, sources said. Some players with hesitation have been discussing a number of issues on return, including family concerns, COVID-19, social justice, and more.
