The NBA says it will withhold payment for unvaccinated players who miss games this season.
“Any player who chooses not to comply with local vaccination mandates will not be paid for the games he misses,” NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in a statement.
According to the Associated Press, unvaccinated players will not be able to eat with vaccinated teammates and their lockers will be located away from others. Unvaccinated players will also need to wear a mask and maintain social distancing guidelines during team meetings.

Unvaccinated players will also be screened regularly during practices or team events and vaccinated players will also be required to submit weekly COVID-19 tests.
The memo also states that players who are not fully vaccinated are expected to stay home with limited exceptions, such as shopping for groceries or transporting children to and from school. They should also limit contact with family members who do not live in their homes.
90% of the players are vaccinated.
