NBA Prepares for Return in Orlando


When NBA players report to Disney properties near Orlando to resume the season, they will be scrutinized intensely in a "bubble" environment to meet health standards.

The NBA health and safety restart memo, which was obtained by CNBC, states players and essential staff will receive a "smart" ring, a Disney MagicBand, individual pulse oximeter and a smart thermometer to help monitor and reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

The memo states there is no opting out policy from the health monitoring once a player is in Orlando.

A player declining to adhere to the daily checking may be required to vacate the premises permanently.

The union has approved the plan.

The league is also looking into a wearable small alarm device to aid in social distancing.
