There have also been reports of the NBA setting stricter rules on teams who violate the coronavirus safety protocols. They can receive fines, suspensions, adjustment or loss of draft choices, and game forfeitures” for any violations. 

ESPN shares the release of a 158-page Health and Safety Memo shared with the teams includes everything they must know about staying compliant with COVID-19 safety protocols. “At home, players and staff are forbidden to enter bars, lounges or clubs, attend live entertainment or game venues, or visit public gyms, spas, pool areas or large indoor social gatherings that exceed 15 people, the memo said.”
