There is a major NBA Covid-19 outbreak sweeping across the league. As a result, many players and coaches currently find themselves in the NBA’s Health and Safety Protocols. Furthermore, new individuals are testing positive every day, and the NBA recently postponed a game for the first time this season.

As the season goes on, we will record all players and coaches as they make their way on and off the NBA Covid-19 protocol list. Players must wait at least ten days after entering the NBA’s Health and Safety Protocols or return two negative tests in a 24 hour period before returning to team activities.

UPDATE DECEMBER 27: New findings from CDC research permit the NBA to decrease the isolation period for those who test positive for COVID-19 from 10 days to five days.
