The NBA doesn’t require players to be vaccinated against coronavirus (though 90% are, according to National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts).

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

Hopefully, this won’t be an issue. Vaccinations keep people, both those inoculated and those around them, safer.

But if there are any coaches or high-profile executives opposed to the vaccine, we’re probably about to find out.
