Slowly the restrictions are starting to loosen for teams and players as they prepare to head to Orlando and a restart of the NBA season.

Starting Tuesday — the day the NBA transaction window opens plus teams are expected start testing players for the coronavirus — teams can also have 10 coaches in their facilities to help players with workouts, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

There remain limits on what players can do in a team facility — one player per basket right now, the balls and court are sanitized after they are done, as is team workout equipment — but they can get up shots and start to get a playing rhythm back.

It’s all part of the NBA’s plan to have 22 teams restart the NBA season inside a bubble/campus on the Walt Disney World property in Orlando. That plan faces challenges but continues to move forward.
