NBA release:

Of the 341 players tested for COVID-19 on the NBA campus since test results were last announced on Aug. 12, zero have returned confirmed positive tests.

Players in the bubble are being kept away from anyone who hasn’t frequently and recently tested negative for coronavirus.

That worked with 22 teams. It’s only easier now with 16 teams.

Families arriving after the first round of the playoffs will present the next big challenge. Until then, the NBA has successfully created a safe environment. Nothing has changed the status quo in place for more than a month.
