With sports slowly returning around the world, now it's basketball's turn, as NBA 2020 returns this Thursday (30th). The competition will take place at the Disney complex in Orlando, Florida. So, like all other sports, the NBA will be no different and neither will it have an audience.

Thus, NBA 2020 returns on Thursday and with a total of 22 teams, of which 16 are classified for the playoffs. Thus, each team will play 8 matches. The matches will be played on three courts, the Arena, the Field House and the Visa Athletic Center.

NBA Protocol

The NBA reported through its safety report that wearing masks is not only mandatory in games and training, but is mandatory in all other situations. In addition, they will have to cover their faces with a distance of 1.80m from one person to another.

On the reserve bench that used to be normal in a single row, it will now be two rows, aiming at a greater distance between all. Thus, in the first row are coaches and players, but only coaches should wear a mask, but those will not be mandatory.

On and off the court, players on the same team can greet each other, shake hands, but not with opponents. In addition, on the court, all players must leave aside things such as drying the ball with the shirt, changing the shirt with the opponent, touching the mouth guard and among other similar things.
