The health and safety protocol for the 2021-22 season, announced on the NBA’s website, includes some measures that will make the life of unvaccinated basketball players more difficult. Unvaccinated basketball players in the league, where it is announced that the vaccination rate has reached 90 percent, will give test samples every day before entering the facilities, interacting with their teammates and technical committee, or participating in the team’s organizations. They will not be able to eat in the same room, their lockers in the dressing rooms will be as far away from their vaccinated friends’ lockers as possible, and they will stay masked at team meetings, approximately 2 meters away from other participants. They will not be able to leave their homes, except for the children’s events, duties related to children) and from the hotel in away matches. Some players, including Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards) and Andrew Wiggins (Golden State Warriors), have announced that they will not be vaccinated. Brooklyn Nets’ Kyrie Irving and Phoenix Suns’ Devin Booker, who did not attend some of their team’s events, did not publicly share whether they were vaccinated.
